Catàleg de Falles

L'hivern de 2021 va veure l'obra d'art acceptada a la segona edició de ‘Catàleg de fracassos’. La sèrie de fotografies titulada ‘Dust to Dust’ juntament amb 'Entre espais', una peça escrita creada al mateix temps que apareix en aquesta publicació.

Misselbrook created drawings using handmade charcoal and then returned them to the fire, unhappy with the failed results.

The artist made paint from the resulting ash bi-product from the ruined paper based artworks. Using olive oil from the artist’s olive farm based studio, this paint was highly corrosive.

The artist then applied this ash paint to her face, as some sort of facial treatment for regeneration. The artist documented each stage of the process and the resulting photographs produce ‘Dust to Dust.

Misselbrook created the written word piece ‘Between Spacesas the artist hiked up the mountain with the ash on her face. The artists recorded these words and put them to imagery to produce video documentation.

Many thanks to Catalogue of Failures for featuring these works. The idea of failure, failing, ruining and trying again forms an integral part of Misselbrook’s practice. Either deliberately destroying ‘perfectresults form casting techniques or ruining and burning drawings or canvases.
