Plet Bolipata: Little Red Riding Hood in Central Park
A book by artist Plet Bolipata, Little Red Riding Hood in Central Park is the artist's "love letter" to New York City. Written and illustrated by the artist, it re-tells the tale of Little Red Hiding Hood while providing a tour of iconic places in the city. It depicts New York as a place that's enchanting and delightful and at the same, dangerous and predatory, addressing long-standing issues of violence against women. This book is part of Bolipata's earlier tableau on the classic tale using crochet, video and sound that was presented as a multi-sensory installation at Art Fair Philippines 2018.
