TIRZO MARTHA. I WONDER IF THEY’LL LAUGH WHEN I AM DEAD

Tirzo Martha

Birgit: I like how this book is like a puzzle. When first browsing through it I see a lot happening and am not completely sure why some choices are made. But as I take some time to find out more about the book, more and more small details that are quite well found become clear. Chapeau!

 

Ruby: One of the jury members pointed out something very interesting when speaking about the book, a point that I had completely missed. The sculptures or installations of Tirzo Martha are large and elaborate with many different details, quite like an organised mess. The way the book is designed – very tight and with a rigid grid – guides you to look at Martha’s works in a structured way.

Auke: That’s some Swiss set typography, very decent. Good paper choice, which brings a nice balance! The brown tactile craft paper with black typography is really calm and nice to read. Contradicting the work of Tirzo Martha with a lot of information and details to discover printed on the satin paper. A fun collaboration between,I think, a very structured design studio and a free-working artist. Both parties nicely come out together in this book.
