Book Sculptures

A great part of Ivana Adaime Makac’s artistic research focuses on investigating the processes of domestication and undomestication of living beings. Particularly, in the Book Sculptures series, she used Savoy cabbage, a vegetable that was domesticated hundreds of years ago for human consumption, treated in different ways: she covered an 1867 edition of Charles Darwin’s The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication and Alphonse de Candolle’s Origine des plants cultivées (1998) with layers of cabbage treated with pigments and lacquer.
