Belinda Blignaut was
working on a series of works about body piercings when we collaborated on
Antibody. It was printed on light-sensitive lith film, and Blignaut laid scalpels,
needles and sutures onto the film before exposing it to UV light. Once
developed and fixed, the transparent film pages allow the viewer to look
through one or a few pages simultaneously. Blignaut made the covers from aluminium
and carefully sutured the cuts made into it. The book was produced in a limited edition of 30 and was included in her first solo exhibition Antibody which was held at Everard Read Contemporary in 1993. The book is sold out.
