The Antibook - Francisca Prieto

Description

Challenging with fun and brio the idea of what a book is, the artist Francisca Prieto  offers a 3-D rendering of Nicanor Parra’s famous ‘antipoems’.  In keeping with the spirit of Parra’s original works, the printed book accompanying the work is unreadable: the text can only be read on the polyhedron, an example of one of the many artist’s books in the British Library.
