Biscuit Basket Basquiat

Jean Michel has been cut from a Barbican leaflet (Boom For Real, photograph by Edo Bertoglio), and hand-stitched to a page from this book, using my nana’s old silk thread.

The biscuit comes from a Co-op food advert, taken from Time Out London (March 22-28, 2016. No. 2372).

The Amazonian basket is used by women to carry bitter cassava, to make bread. Taken from Artefactos by Liliana Villegas and Benjamin Villegas. The photograph was taken by José Fernando Machado, Jorge Eduardo Arango, Diego Sampler or Diego Miguel Garcé. It is unclear which.
