Denise A. Aubertin

A. Aubertin





Born in 1933 in Boulogne-sur-Seine.
Died in 2019 in Paris.


An insatiable reader and author of several manuscripts, Denise A. Aubertin began working on books in 1969, in the form of book-objects, called the Impubliables Journals. Through collages of photos, images like bubbles from comics or pieces of text, she appropriates books and tells her own story. The unpublished newspapers are followed from 1974 Cooked Books, where she creates her own Dadaist cuisine by coating various ingredients (salt, pepper, aromatic plants, flour, pasta, candied fruits etc.) then baking the books chosen by her among those she loved.

“ I began sculpturing books. I rubbed books on the muddy balcony, let them at night in the rain and in the wind, put them in the kitchen, very close to the stove, where the fat splashed them, then, over pages dirtied with a “symbolic grime”, I wrote my newspaper, with images that I made mine. Soon, I was about to find a solution of a very personal way of expression. " Denise A. Aubertin


Her work is visible in many public and private collections, in France and abroad, and was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Maison Rouge in 2006.


Two solo exhibitions by Denise A. Aubertin took place at the Lara Vincy Gallery: Journaux impubliables in 2006 and Dévorer des yeux (cooked books and impubliables newspapers) in 2011.
