How to Wrap Five More Eggs: Traditional Japanese Packaging

Hideyuki Oka


Published by Weatherhill, 1975, 7.2 x 10.4 inches

Dust jacket by Charlotte de Mezamat, ink on paper, approx. 23 inches long 

The exhibition consists of a series of books curated by the artist, each of which has had its dust-jacket replaced by a unique work-on-paper. 

Mezamat describes these books as environments, locations she has spent time in. Motifs and impressions were drawn from the interiors of each book, focusing on recurring forms across the selection; threads, ropes and nets are brought to the surface.
