Canadian artist geoffrey farmer has created the three dimensional and sculptural collage work ‘leaves of grass’ for the 13th documenta art festival, which features the works of 200 artists and takes place every five years for a duration of 100 days in kassel, germany. The work spans sixty feet and is built from thousands of clippings from american image-centric magazine LIFE taken between the years of 1935 and 1985. Each of the small photograph cut-outs feature various objects from advertisements and articles including politicians to products evocative of a particular point in visual history for the american journal. these excerpts from LIFE are affixed individually to thin wooden posts in order to properly display every image chosen by the artist from this fifty year period.
