Biography

Situated at the crossroads of art, design and daily life, the paper collages series Biography started around 2009 by Jérôme Knebusch turns an ordinary object edited in thousands of copies into a unique artwork. Mostly, the tickets come from travels, hotels, restaurants, exhibitions. The almost archeological working protocol is recurrent: recomposed in a new order they keep exactly the same format. They become souvenirs of small choices made in life, things seen, heard, done – of which only fragments survive.

All collages are signed and contain a small note at the back.
The 'Biography, 2003-2018 [folded]' booklet is offered for a collage purchase.
