  • Product description

    Circa the 1970’s, this framed silkscreen by Donna Joan Borup uses bright, blocked tones of green, blue, orange, yellow, white and black to create a wedding scene. Two rows of soldiers create a tunnel of swords. Groups of women on either side similarly hold their hands in the air. The bride and groom start their journey down the tunnel, their child-like stature surely a political commentary on the conventions of marriage. Annotations next to the couple indicate Iggie and Sylvie, and is repeated on the mat surrounding the piece.


    About the Artist:
    Donna Joan Borup
    is an artist trained in graphic design and silkscreening who landed herself on the FBI most wanted list after blinding a cop with acid during an anti-apartheid demostration at JFK International Airport in 1981. Known to have a photographic memory, the ability to speed read, and an IQ of 164, Borup was nothing short of a radical genius. She failed to appear to her trial and has been missing ever since. Prior to her career as an activist and revolutionary, Borup worked as an artist.
