Published alongside the survey exhibition Janet Lilo: Status Update
, this unique publication features text from five writers: Ioana Gordon-Smith, Monique Redmond, Caterina Riva, Ema Tavola and Nina Tonga. With Tessa King acting as editor and Te Uru’s in-house designer Julia Gamble Vale over-seeing Status Update’s
look and production, the book is proudly an all-woman affair.
This hardcover publication has a screen-printed buckram-bound cover and features a custom hand-cut vinyl font created by the artist. It also features over 250 of Janet Lilo's colour photographs and multiple hand-drawings by the artist. The publication's endpapers feature images from the artists' 1000 Grams project.
