  • DESCRIPTION

    The Giving Way finds itself, disoriented, in the ‘cold narrow vaults of the world’ — those now-silent caves that hold the residues of Palaeolithic human mark-making. In these subterranean spaces questions echo and reverberate, begetting others and still others about the isness and itness of being; of life, death and their umbral shadows, and the passing of forms from plant and animal and human, each ‘becoming tabula rasa for the next’.

     

    The pamphlet is illustrated by the artist’s own collages, which gather like the scatter of flint debitage around a long-cold Ice Age hearth.
