Edition of 30 (3 available at MOSTYN)

Working across sculpture, painting, text and sound, Papadopoulos’ practice defies traditional representations of the body, creating excessive, decaying and abject hybrid forms hovering between the worlds of the imagined and the real. Through a process of assemblage, her work is formed of found objects amassed and collaged together. Traditional binary perceptions of gender and sexuality are uprooted and unfixed.

This series of 30 stuffed cover books was made in conjunction with the publishing of Athena Papadopoulos’s first novel "A Tittle-Tattle-Tell-a-Tale Heart" as a sculptural work. This edition was the point of departure for the new stuffed bible sculpture in the exhibition Cain and Abel Can’t and Able, MOSTYN March - October 2020.

MOSTYN is a charity registered in the UK and proceeds from the sales of the editions will be invested back into the gallery's exhibition and engagement programme.
