Serpentine Illusions

Sara Glaxia


This edition is the second collaboration between
Sara Glaxia and Juli Susin after the 2005 installation
Fixed Explosion on the fifteenth floor of the Ibis
Hotel at the Porte de Montreuil, where the entire
volume of the rooms of Juli Susin and Raymond
Pettibon was entirely obscured by a “fixed
explosion” of balls of news papers soaked in ink and
bourbon. Ten years later, when the idea of a second
collaboration was brought up, the editor decided to
make the centrifugal force of the ‘fixed explosion
into a thimble-sized one’. It was at this point that
the artist, mastering transformations and magical
acts like a familiar ritual, pulled the 1 × 2 cm blank
booklet that was to become Serpentine Illusions
out of her pocket . The work now features sixty ink
drawings and autobiographical poems. The special
edition contains an embroidery by Frédérique Petit,
inspired by a Glaxia d Two copies of head in a box
canvas (30 x 35 cm), incorporating an embroidery
by Frederique Petit made from the drawings of the
artist. The title is calligraphed by artist..
