Jan. 4, 1933: The oceanliner L’Atlantique, en route to Cherbourg from Bordeaux for “annual overhauling,” caught fire near the Normandy coast, near its destination,  and “rumors of sabotage were current.” The fire had spread so swiftly, starting from somewhere in the first-class quarters, that its cause couldn’t be determined, and 17 of its 238 crew were presumed dead (and, later, five stowaways were found dead). A literal tug-o’-war ensued, as ships from France, Germany and the Netherlands vied to tow it back and receive compensation. A French and Dutch ship reached the beleaguered vessel first, and “the tugs started pulling in opposite directions, getting nowhere and endangering the L’Atlantique even further.” Order was restored by a nearby warship.

Nicholas Jones born 1974 in UK,  is an international book sculptor based in Melbourne Australia. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1997, Master of Fine Art at RMIT University in 2001 and a Graduate Diploma of Education at The University of Melbourne in 2003.

Nicholas Jones aims at highlight- ing the poetic nature of the book as a form. From his tiny Melbourne studio, he stacks, folds, tears, cuts and sews book leaves, transforming books into works of art, small sculptures that question the way books are read. Like a surgeon examin- ing and reorganizing body tissue, armed with a scalpel, Jones readdresses the book’s tissue – paper – dissecting unwanted books, casting a new light on books as an everyday commodity.
From Where They Create. Text by Alexandra Onderwater.
