Samara Scott, The Doldrums
For the last few years, the CAPC Musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux has developed a series of publications devoted in particular to the installations exhibited in the nave of the CAPC. Over the past 40 years, these installations have been part of several majestic and ambitious projects and have contributed to the museum’s renown. This series seeks to pay homage and to showcase these large-scale productions. The graphic design of this project has been entrusted to Studio Manuel Raeder. For the publications, the emphasis has been put on the image in a suitable format, characterised by a radical design.
The new book in the series focuses on the exhibition The Doldrums by artist Samara Scott whose work was presented at the CAPC from 18 September 2020 to 23 May 2021. This book, entirely conceived and designed as an artist’s book by Samara Scott and the exhibition’s curator Alice Motard, offers a rich and colourful journey into the “toxic landscape” composed of various waste that the artist recovered to produce her ambitious project in Bordeaux. An interview enlightens the reader on the whys and wherefores of this remarkable installation created for the large nave of the CAPC.
