As Bianca Baldi’s publication Play-White sits amidst her recent video work of the same title and a newly commissioned series of textile works, the artist stages ideas around the complicated act of passing. Combining personal stories and literary characters, in a study of radical transgressions, camouflage, unspoken sadness and survival, Baldi draws on historical and zoomorphic research to present a compelling meditation on perception, embodiment, self-presentation, and the aesthetic thresholds of identity. With contributions by Bianca Baldi, Mika Conradie, Shoniqua Roach, Kate Strain, Pieternel Vermoortel, Amy Watson, and others. English-German translation by Anna-Sophie Springer, and design by Katharina Tauer & Wolfgang Hückel in collaboration with K. Verlag.
