Myfanwy MacLeod: Whole Lotta Love
Artist Book and Print Edition Launch + Exhibition
Friday December 9th at 8:30pm at Presentation House Gallery
Exhibition December 10 - January 8, 2012
Join Publication Studio Vancouver at the Presentation House Gallery where we will launch "Whole Lotta Love" an artist book and limited silk-screen edition by Myfanwy Macleod. The book and edition will be on exhibit until January 8th.
In "Whole Lotta Love" MacLeod takes on one of the most iconic songs by one of the most prolific bands in classic rock history to present the reader with an x-rated illustrated songbook. By fixing the song within the codex and picturing the lyrics via simple line drawings and bubble lettering, MacLeod privileges the visual over the sonic, offering another type of cover version. Through the highly-sexed depiction of the song, the artist perverts the dominant male codes of rock and roll by opening up a point of entry for female desire all the while maintaining her characteristic humor and wit.
"Whole Lotta Love" is the title of Myfanwy MacLeod?s new artist book and a limited edition silk-screen print edition published by Publication Studio Vancouver and is the first project our new Slade Editions series.
