The Quest
Delphine Chapuis Schmitz

Delphine Chapuis Schmitz sifted Christoph Schifferli’s collection on artists’ books, selected single words and sentences. Isolated and not longer attached to a context, the words were combined anew to verses, the verses placed on pages (…) The quest is on appropriation in writing, on sources no longer, on content through form. On poetry. Concealing, unveiling: A quest suggests change, is often allegorical, a plot divide to introduce momentum into a narrative. (…) A livre à venir, now become.
