Loubières, Jean-Claude, 1947-
Library has 13/55.; "Based on an anecdote about a horseback stuntmen, a movie studio and burned books being used to create fire and smoke, the artist collected images of burning books on the net and treated them graphically to make them look as if they, too, were burning. An autodafé was the ritual of public penance of condemned heretics and apostates that took place when the Spanish, Portuguese or Mexican Inquisition had decided their punishment, followed by the execution by the civil authorities of the sentences imposed. The most extreme punishment imposed on those convicted was execution by burning. In popular usage, the term autodafé, the act of public penance, came to mean the burning at the stake."--From the artist's website (http://www.jeanclaudeloubieres.com/)
