Luanne Martineau re-works each cover of FREAKOUT, grafting polymorphous forms from grey and coloured fleece onto the existing industrial grey felt cover and densely sandwiched texts.


Out of stock



Abject and beautiful, these parasitic swellings, bruises, organic and decorative forms now invade and adorn the cover. Inside, the densely sandwiched texts are transplants from a range of history. German surrealist Hannah Hoch, Oscar Wilde, the British novelist Angela Carter and philosopher/theorist Georges Bataille, are intertwined with documentary photographs from the U.B.C. Architecture Department and images of the artist’s recent work.Limited Edition: 20 copies (+2 APs) signed and numbered by the artist on the first page.
