Sarah Bodman and Tom Sowden were invited to make a collaborative book 'Scott’s Flight: Migrating East' a unique reconfigured book, cut with figures of Ospreys for the 4th round of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina International Biennale for the Artist’s Book at The Bibliotheca Alexandrina Arts Center from 22 April to 25 May 2010.
“Nomadic Cultures” was chosen as a theme for this round, a theme considered by the Italian Art theorist Achille Bonito Oliva – coiner of the term ‘transavantgarde’—as an essential element of any transavantgarde artist. General commissioners of the Biennale are artists Fernanda Fedi and Gino Gini.
The exhibition, curated by Fernanda Fedi and Gino Gini, Alexandria, Egypt, includes 46 artists from 25 countries and runs from 22 April until 14 May 2010. The artefacts will remain in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Arts Center to enrich its permanent Artist's Book collection.
