Isabelle Cornaro

Fascination and Disgust of Matter. On Words

A compelling collection of interviews that sheds light on many different aspects of Isabelle Cornaro’s art and deepens the understanding of the different facets of her work.
Isabelle Cornaro, based in Paris and Geneva, holds degrees in art history and visual arts. She has a strong interest in experimental cinema and devotes herself to the narrative, symbolic, and economic origins of things. In her work she assumes an anthropologist-type manner to investigate people’s seemingly fixated attachment to emotionally charged, even fetishized objects, creating large stage installations and short movies.

This book is part of the new On Words series that presents conversations with contemporary women artists. Through these conversations, readers come to understand the sources from which they draw inspiration, the themes in their work, and their view of the world. Bringing together a wide range of viewpoints, the On Words series adds a new narrative to polyphonic art history as told by those who actively shape it.
