Winner exhibit: los machen

Artist’s book, 2016

The leporello booklet "los machen" was created as a graphic interaction between etchings by Natalia Weiss and silkscreen prints by Georg Lebzelter, based on texts by the poet Oskar Pastior. Almost every double page contains a picture, with tension being generated by the different printing techniques: The one image, the etching, is limited by the printing plate, the other side is freer in its black-red-brownish figurative design, extending beyond the edge of the one page and into the next. The depictions are fantasy creatures, composed of animal bodies and human organs and limbs. The pictures reproduce the text of the poem "los machen" without being purely illustrations.
