The Migrant - the artist book

The Migrant from Anais Lopez on Vimeo.

‘The Migrant’ is the remarkable life story of a bird, a story about how we treat animals, about the feasibility of the perfect city en about our efforts to create a perfect society. At the same time it is a metaphor for our attitude towards the ‘migrant’.

Anais López uses a book to tell this story. An it’s not just any regular book: it’s an object of art, with silk screen prints in a monumental A3 format, containing illustrations and popups. The book was designed by the much acclaimed graphic designer Teun van der Heijden, the pop-ups made beautifully by hand by artist Moon Brouwer and is illustrated by the renowned Singaporean cartoonist Sonny Liew. Edition: 3 copies
