The frisson of the togetherness

If you have yet to see Leonor Antunes’ site-specific commission at the Whitechapel Gallery, now is the time to pay a visit, as the exhibition is in its final week. The installation, titled ‘The frisson of the togetherness’, combines layered structures constructed from leather, rope, wire, wood, glass and linoleum, incorporating references to overlooked female figures in the history of Modernism and to the gallery’s seminal 1956 exhibition ‘This Is Tomorrow’.

We designed a publication to accompany the commission, which continues Antunes’ thematic exploration of layered references within its design, featuring installation photography, reference materials, loose-leaf inserts behind a clear archival slipcover, and 1:1 reproductions from her previous publications. The exhibition runs until 8 April at the Whitechapel Gallery, and the book is available now.
