La Mia Prima Lezione (2007)
In La Mia Prima Lezione (My First Lesson) the artist draws on her childhood memory of learning to write in English at school in Australia at a time when Italian was her first language. The book works its way through letters to words, which finally make the sentence: scusi non capisco niente (sorry I don’t understand anything), and shows how one can be taught without understanding. Linocut print, acrylic, pen and ink. 35 x 27cm. Bound by George Matoulas. Made for Lessons in History Vol. 1 exhibition held at grahame galleries + editions in 2007. Edition 6/6.
