Playing & Reality

Playing & Reality is a collaborative print set by artist Paul Wackers and writer Leigh Gallagher. Inspired by the 1971 book of the same title, Playing & Reality draws on psychoanalyst D.W. Winnicott’s notions surrounding transitional phenomena and the power of human-object relationships in three fictional, cut-up case studies (Gallagher) and five original images (Wackers).  

Sets contain five double-sided posters sleeved in a hand-stamped folder. 11 x 17, offset printing, signed edition of 100.  

The following excerpt presents Winnicott's original text (small font) interwoven with Gallagher's.
