published by Imschoot, Uitgevers, Ghent, Belgium
Seven bullet holes are randomly shot into the blank pages of this artist book. The cover has residue of gun powder. The publisher suggests that Kendell Geers’ exile from his homeland of South Africa and its violence during Apartheid inspired him make this multiple. The sooth of gunpowder is very vulnerable spread over the front of the cover and the cellophane bag may create hardly visible scratches.
