Building images from a wall

We just got back from a weekend in new Orleans to see the Prospect 1 Bienniel. I really enjoyed it and will be posting my favorites for the week. The work that stuck with me for the drive up was Anne Deleporte. We only got to see one piece by her (there are two) but the process is well- haunting. She wallpapers a space with newpapers and magazines and then paints out everything but small iconic figures or images that just seem to hang in space. These are not great images but visiting her site will give you an idea of the process, there also seems to be a book which I will be on the look out for.
