Transforming hate: an artist's book
An artist's book
Sligh, Clarissa T.
"This book evolved from a project for which I folded origami cranes from pages of white supremacist books for the exhibition, Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate… I was trying to look at what it was like for me to turn hateful words into a beautiful art object. What actually evolved from that exploration helped me understand more fully the many levels of oppression and violence at the intersections of race, gender, class and sexual orientation." –Colophon. Book of photographs and text interspersed with gold pages; square 8x8" pages in origami paper dimensions, housed in foldout die-cut box with gold foil origami crane inserted into cover slot. Signed and numbered by the artist. The collection has copy 136 of 1000.
