Description

“L’Anonyme” features the work of Erika Altosaar, a young artist studying and working in Montreal. The book charts a transformation in understanding sexuality, sensuality, gender programming and its consequences. Originally drawn blind with charcoal on pico, the markings themselves communicate the fragility of figure. Faceless, the women found in “L’Anonyme” are both affecting and representative, becoming placeholders for daughters, sisters, mothers, wives—and yet in the absence of their identity we are eerily barred from recognition. With little means of distinguishing one woman from another, we are left with volume, caricature, and anatomy to signal their individuality.

Edition of 300.
