19 5/8 x 19 5/8 in. (50 x 50 cm)
Hand sewn cotton accordion pleated leporello book, with screen printing, in cloth box with colophon. Published by Zucker Art Books, NY. Edition of 8 variants, with 2 AP. Each copy is signed and numbered. Each book is handmade from repurposed textiles the artist found in Mexico City. Camil’s interventions include cutting shapes common in making of clothes such as sleeves, collars, torsos, and recombining them in a colorful array, hand sewn into a double sided sequence. She designed small buttonholes in between the panels so the work can be hung as a banner as well, choosing either side for display. This sort of interaction between the work and the viewer is a key element throughout Camil’s oeuvre, which includes works to be worn or walked on.
