The Pyschopathological Notebook - Bjarne Melgaard


Created three decades ago, The original Psychopathological Notebook is one of the most important works of artist Karel Appel, a central member of the Cobra artist group. Taking the facsimile of Appel’s notebook as his “canvas” Melgaard's frenetic drawings and collage surge through the entire volume, a cannibalistic work that sees the artist crossing out Appel’s name with urgently-applied strokes of black ink wherever it appears.
