Antibody by Belinda Blignaut

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 we 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. Belinda made the covers from metal 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.
