Assembly by Chisato Tamabayashi



Handcut, hand screen printed book by Chisato Tamabayashi.

"I don’t use any words in my books; they’re purely visual, because language creates barriers. I believe that visual language is universal, so hopefully the narrative I’m suggesting in my work can communicate through the imagery alone or take people along on their own imaginative journeys.

So for me, narrative is important, but the narratives in my work are mine so I hope people can be moved by these to imagine their own narratives.

I think tactility is very important and maybe that’s why I choose a book format. To enjoy an artist book, you have to touch the book, go through it at your own pace, feel the paper, listen to the noises (sometimes my pop-up pieces make noise!) and enjoy the images."
