Soledad Senlle Art Foundation
In Noëlle Cuppens ‘s project Last pages she worked with Letraset graphic characters. This rubbing characters are not being produced anymore and it has always been a matter of dealing with the amount of figures available. She decided to rewrite the last book of Marguerite Duras, (C’est Tout) with the letters from the few sheets she had left, resulting in her artistbook The Last Pages. A mysterious writing due to the gaps where no Letraset figure would be available and the mix of all diferents fonts and sizes.
Noëlle Cuppens was offered to use the box Letraset of Michael Gibbs and she will re-enact his performance Ad nausaeum (getting nauseous) during the exhibition at Soledad Senlle Art Foundation.
The Last Pages is based on the rediscovery of a set of Letraset dry transfer letters by Noëlle Cuppens. When she found out that these transfer letters were no longer being made, she decided to use what she had remaining to ‘re-write’ the last book of Marguerite Duras: “C’est Tout” (No More). The result is a manuscript of 96 pages on drawing paper with hand-rubbed letters. The manuscript was made into an Artist Book and is designed by Art Collart and printed at the Charles Nypels Lab, van Eyck.
