AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An artist's book of six etchings, printed on Magnani Velata Avorio 200gsm paper, hand set in Baskerville 12pt type, inspired by a poem from Melbourne-based poet Jordie Albiston. According to the poet, the poem "attempts to speak to the delicate space between order and confusion; havoc and calm," and takes the pantoum - a circular form using rhymed line repetitions structured into 4-line stanzas - and reorganizes the quatrains into 5-line stanzas to "upset the predictability of the poem's progression, creating a strange visual friction and a sense of internal unease." According to the artist, "the images depict movement and revisitation as associated landscape, occasioning patterns of thought and a suggestion of the artist's own nightly descent into disorder until harmony is ultimately salvaged."--Adapted from the artists' statements.'
