Place publication: Johannesburg Publisher: The artist Exhibition 2017
Reference note: The title, 'fruitleafalgaestone' was originally used to describe a set of four flags that are used in a performance by the same name. Each of the flags represents not only one of a craftsman's base materials but also evoked two spirits, a forest (tree or bush) spirit and a water spirit. It was exhibited and performed in 2015, at the 56th Venice Art Biennale on the main exhibition, All the World's Futures, curated by Okwui Enwezor.
The 4 prints in the book are 'translations' into graphics of those 4 flags together with a contextual text.
Hand-made bookbinding & editioned digital prints
The book consists of four graphics, a sheet of background information contained in an artist- and custom-made box-type portfolio.
