‘λιφντε / liefde’

As my contribution to the ‘Paper’ exhibition, I’m presenting a series of works from my larger project called ‘λιφντε / liefde.’ The series features handmade paper sheets made from Greek language learning books that are usually used by Greek or half-Greek children living abroad. The created paper retains fragments of letters or words from the original books, that are visible here and there.

On each sheet of handmade paper, I have printed the word ‘liefde’ which means ‘love’ in Dutch. The word is designed with Greek characters and printed using the linoleum engraving technique. View the works here.
