Artist Yishu Wang's hand-pulled black and white screen printing artist book Summer, Go Home represents a diversion and a new direction to her largely representational art practice.
Summer, Go Home's minimal imagery and the void of colors and tones represents a piece of the artist's memory materialized in words, signs, and the physicality of the book itself.
This artist book is divided into front and back. The accordion fold allows the viewers two different ways of viewing the book: one presenting viewers purely with imagery and signs, the other purely words. The two sides illustrate and interpret each other in a dialogue that examines the limitation and possibility of each form of expression.
