Cecilia Vicuna: About To Happen

Publisher Siglio

ISBN 9781938221156

Vicuña makes art of gathered materials from the ocean, the river and the street. Beginning and ending at the edge of the ocean, Chilean­born artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña's (born 1948) artist's book serves as both a lament and love letter to the sea. Vicuña collects the detritus that washes up on shore and assembles out of the refuse tiny precarios and basuritas—little sculptures held together with nothing more than string and wire.
