Paul Cupido: Continuum (signed)
Continuum is Paul Cupido’s third artist book, following after the much acclaimed Searching for Mu and the zine Suave (both sold out). This year two other books were published by third parties: Ephémère (by Gallery Bidhalle, Zurich) and Senses (Kahmann Gallery, Amsterdam).
In Continuum Paul Cupido takes us to Japanese islands of Ishigaki, Iriomote and Taketomi, in his own enchanting visual language that shows his background as a graphic designer and his development as an artist with a strong sense for beauty, playing around with photographic and printing techniques.
Cupido about his work: ‘I aim to engage with the world with wide-open senses. My work is about the magic moments of life as well as its inconveniences. I want to take pictures, while forgetting about the process of photography, until I’m saturated with an existential sense of life. Every step I take begins with the notion of ‘mono no aware’: the transience of everything, the gentle melancholy of things, being sensitive to ephemera.’
First edition: 300 copies
