Like / Dislike: Rosemarie Auberson

rosemarie auberson

Likes/Dislikes asks interesting individuals to create two lists: one of their likes, one of dislikes. The feature is based on two things: an excerpt from Susan Sontag’s As Consciousness Is Harnessed to Flesh: Journals and Notebooks, 1964-1980 and another from Roland Barthes’ autobiography (trans. Richard Howard, 1977). The exercise, while gratuitous, is rooted in ideas of pattern, construction, specificity, and memory.

Rosemarie Auberson is Swiss-born illustrator and art director living in Paris vente ligne viagra. In parallel, she explores her more personal work through collage.
