A city is a living thing. Its heartbeats match up with our own. It inhales as we exhale. We feel our hometowns in our very bones; we feel our current city in every step we take.
Through bookmaking, Artist’s Book resident Natalie Draz investigates the structure of her body in relation to her urban surroundings. The sculptural pages of "The City Within" take readers on an adventure in cartography and fantastical anatomy via the streets of Montreal. Combining different bookmaking and printmaking techniques, Natalie’s clustered buildings and winding streets come alive, inviting readers to explore the correlation between interior and exterior spaces.
“I think a city can live within a person as much as a person can live in a city,” says Natalie.
