This is a collection of Mimmo Rotella's SeriDécollages that consists of 50 multiples decollages torn by hand cased on film poster and on Marilyn Monroe.
The technique of the SeriDécollages
The technique involves a poster used as a support. On in there is another one superimposed that the Artist tore by hand.
Even if each SeriDécollage is a multiple, it is also as a single original artwork because of Mimmo Rotella's manual intervention. In fact the handmade tears are similar but not equal.
The SeriDécollages are a limited edition of 125 sheets numbered in Arab numerals, 50 in Roman notation and some Artist's Proof.
Each artwork is numbered on the lower left;
Each artwork is signed by the Artist on the lower right;
Each artwork has the embossing stamp of the Fondazione Mimmo Rotella
The whole collection is published on the catalogue: Elena Pontiggia, Mimmo Rotella Multiples Decollages, Milan, Silvana Editoriale, 2005.
