Title Cardboard tube from Francesco Nassimbeni's Play-Play Type Ephemera

A cardboard keepsake from Francesco Nassimbeni's residency in A4’s Reading Room, titled Play-Play. For the duration of Francesco Nassimbeni’s residency, Frankie was making, doing and playing – and invited friends and collaborators to make, do and play, too. The resulting engagements included balloon-and-torch dancing, paper-lantern painting, exquisite-corpse drawing among strangers, and constructing wearables. Frankie hosted Lalela’s Silikamva High school learners as well as Lalela’s alumni on consecutive Fridays, constructing cityscapes from boxes and board.
