Conceived both as a book and an artwork, Blonde by Nico Vascellari is a collection of images from one of the artist’s personal archives: a selection of 200 press clippings titled “Blonde”. Each press clipping has been reproduced in its own original format on 90 gsm glossy paper, as ripped and collected by the artist over the last ten years. The whole collection, printed on unbound single sheets, is packaged in a black cardboard box, silkscreened and individually numbered.
The pages of this publication derive for the most part from fashion magazines. The iconographic theme of “the blonde” is represented obsessively. The sequence of the images is random, as is the selection of press clippings. This archive reflects the artist’s personal fetish for the image, in this case of blondes and their collective representation.
The special signed and numbered edition of 33 multiples includes an original unique work produced by the artist. Each piece is a collage composed by cutouts of blonde wigs from the original press clippings of Nico Vascellari’s “Blonde” archive.
