Sara MacKillop | Faded Paper

Sara MacKillop
Faded Paper
Bristol, England: Spike Island, 2011
16 pp., 32 x 24 cm., staplebound
Edition of 150 numbered copies

An installation in 2011 at Spike Island in Bristol featured eight found pieces of paper, removed from institutional noticeboards and documenting (through sun fading) the size and shape of the announcements temporarily pinned there. The bookwork reproduces these images and features a cover of mauve sugar paper, designed itself to fade with minimal contact with sunlight.
