[New York: The Artist, 1989. Folding, multipanel screen, in three major components (35.5 x 16 x 9 cm folded). Enclosed in gilt decorated linen chemise and slipcase with side panels decorated with color paste-paper collages, with inserted multipanel folding hand-painted construction of corrugated and cloth to "fill" in the slipcase. A unique book object, signed and dated by the artist on the slipcase. The structure is constructed from bookboard, paper and cloth folding panels, which are supported by metal- reinforced stilts. Fashioned in sections allowing for different permutations of arrangement, the screen unfolds to a length of over 75 cm, and adjoined panels fold upward revealing collages that include photographs, photocopies and other materials.
