Artist File find of the day: a diazo (heliograph) print by Argentinian artist León Ferrari. Titled Planta and dated 1980, this detail of the blueprint-sized plan shows how the artist used architectural clip art to create a dense human maze—suggesting a world gone cubicle.
Looking at works by Ferrari in the curatorial collection puts Planta in context of his Heliografias series. For example, Barrio and Cidade (both 1980) scale up into complex cityscapes, while others such as Gente (c. 1983) form abstract patterns that can be imagined at any scale.
Speaking of context, at the library we also have many artists’ books by Ferrari, as well as a good slug of books about the artist.
You just never know what you’ll find in the library’s artist files. -jt
