April Yasamee 

My submission is three repurposed paperback books, made into artists’ books using mixed media. The paperbacks were donations and have been on my personal bookshelves. I combined them with manipulated personal archive photographic prints, in which the photographic model suggested the story ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to me.

Together with mixed media of metals and lead, the sculptures extend beyond reading material and can no longer be read, but are open to interpretation as sculptural objects. The fragility of paper and card contrasts with the hard metals, that encase and enclose them in a sculptural armature.
