Publisher's description: Formel:Marionette is packed with detailed information on the painstaking process behind Berlin-based artist Suse Weber's installations and performances. Weber (b. 1970) tackles issues of symbolic order and social structure in her life-size puppet performances. Using a system of symbols composed of a massive number of visual elements, over 1,000 to date, taken from everyday objects and materials, she assembles visual structures that resemble national symbols or elements of heraldry. She calls the resulting installations "emblematic sculptures." The development of these rhetorical visual structures is reproduced and interwoven with the artist's extensive notes on each project along with past exhibition installation shots in this diary-like artist book. Weber studied fine arts at the University of the Arts in Berlin with Georg Baselitz and electroacoustic music with Martin Supper.
