Anna Plestilova, Ukolebavka pro male pavy (Lullaby for Little Peacocks), Prague, Czech Republic, 2014


A subtle series of drawings and texts make up this rather delicate one-sided accordion that takes as its main theme the 'eyes' in peacock's feathers with the final image of a closed eye 'closing' the book as it were. According to the artist each page of verse is a different take on peacock's eyes and she notes that she chose the accordion format as "...it is possible to open it as a hand fan," in a similar manner as to how the peacock displays its feathers in a fan shape.
