The main idea behind STEIDL-WERK No.23: MASAHO ANOTANI "DEFORMED" is to create a paper object never seen before. A joint project, it stems from the exclusive collaboration between Theseus Chan 's WERK magazine and Steidl Publishers for this particular issue of WERK. This magazine issue features a young Japanese artist, Masaho Anotani, whose complex collage-like drawings, sometimes surreal and sometimes disturbing compositions, are made almost entirely by hand. The title "DEFORMED" is part of the idea to create a misshapen book that evolves during the process of coming into existence. Building on the concept of clashing, creating and destructing the final product, something new - a chaotic bricolage of "printed junk" - is born.
