Abstract or Description:

On Innards is a multidisciplinary project developed by artists; Amanda Couch, Mindy Lee and Andrew Hladky, that explores the changing conceptualisations of guts and digestion, their impact on the creative process and the role they play in constructing and destabilising our sense of self. Bookwork artist and designer Richard Nash joined the project to collaborate and lead on dissecting, extending, and reconnecting the record of this two-year project in the form of a limited-edition artist book, On Innards | Publication.

With 200 pages of intersecting formats, Nash created a hybrid research journal and artists’ book as an embodiment of digestion. Its intestinal form interweaves, concertinas, fold-outs, pop-ups, gate-folds, roll-folds and reveals. Nash created an innovative custom ‘mesenteric’ binding, which, when unwound, allows the book to be opened further, unfolding to reveal hidden ideas, images and text.
