Malin Gabriella Nordin
Fruits of Yesterday’s Harvest
Art director, editor and designer for Swedish artist Malin Gabriella Nordin’s limited edition publication Fruits of Yesterday’s Harvest.
If one called painting by its name, Malin Gabriella Nordin would probably have it respond with the voice of rocks: of stones that fluently speak their own language of shapes and ciphers and glow with multiple colours in the dark. Nordin gives abstract forms of a unique presence that is subtly spooky, animated by the silent laughter of beings from other dimensions.
— Jan Verwoert, art critic
The publication consists of collages made between 2014 and 2015. The format of the images are based on the formats of the artist’s original works. They are all in their full potential size on its respective page, without being cropped. Composition to highlight the artist’s way of working in various formats and not having any set rules on how her work should come out. Through consistent pagination and inconsistent layout, it presents the artist’s way of structuring order and chaos.
14 cm x 20 cm (5.5” x 7.9”). 24 pages. 21 black/white collages. Black/white offset printed softcover. Saddle-stitched.
