Magali Duzant At New York Art Book Fair
18 sep 2015 by art:i:curate team
art:i:curate artist Magali Duzant launches her artist book 'I Looked & Looked' in conjunction with the 2015 NY Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1.
This discrete artist book borrows its title from a love letter that Alfred Stieglitz wrote to Georgia O’Keeffe on the night of September 25th, 1923. In his letter, Stieglitz describes a full, white moon over Lake George, New York. On the same night, O’Keeffe penned a description of a pink moon, as witnessed from the shore of York Beach, Maine.
Inspired by the synchronicity of this romantic exchange, Magali Duzant asked fellow artists to anonymously describe the full moon on October 29th, 2012, from their vantage points across the country. The surprise of Hurricane Sandy led to wildly varying accounts of a single sky. 'I Looked & Looked' weaves these narratives together with Duzant’s images in a lyrical reflection on the natural world as a source of interconnectedness.
Magali Duzant is an artist and photographer based in New York. She earned her BA in Fine Art & Visual Culture from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh (2009) and her MFA in Photography from Parsons The New School for Design, New York (2014).
