Open Shields, Artist book

“Open Shields” is an Artists’ book accompanying the exhibition “Plateau” at Secession, Vienna (2 July – 5 Sept 2021).

Featuring research images taken on my mobile phone as I ideated the film “Plateau”, the book’s notebook format is inspired by the way I conceptualise my ideas. A gold foil motif to the front – a reiteration of a piece of earth I encountered on mining sites in Jos, is combined with a pink cover and linen binding – earthy tones mirroring the clay tones of the region. Text by Erika Balsom gives further insight into “Plateau”.

Available to purchase at Secession.
