SISSI FARASSAT: SEQUENCE. Roger Palmer. Fotohof edition, Salzburg, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 80 pp. 22 x 19 cm. ISBN 9783902675972 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: The richly embroidered photographs presented in Sequence, the new artist's book from artist Sissi Farassat, are a unique combination of Persian and Viennese art and design influences. Born in Tehran in 1969, Farassat moved with her family to Vienna in 1978. Her largely autobiographical works reveal her personal history not only in their imagery but in their technique of hand-weaving--in this case with thread, sequins or semiprecious stones, into her analog color photographs, or embroidering their reverse sides with the image's silhouette. Encountering Farassat's works, one quickly sees that hundreds of hours have been spent weaving threads as one might a carpet, thus slowing down the instantaneous photographic process and changing what is traditionally a multiple into a unique object. Text by New York-based visual artist and photographer Daniel Blochwitzco on the artist's process and 38 color images complete this slender and elegant book.
