"I Know Nothing of the End"
The artist book, "I Know Nothing of the End," is composed of single, unpunctuated sentences, drawn out with a single line accompanying each image. The text describes a scene surrounding a death ritual involving the ashes of the deceased being stored outside the family home for thirteen days in a terracotta pot covered with white cloth. The photographic etchings were taken from film stills from footage in an Indian home. The images of a domestic setting, when rendered in black and white elicit the latent cinematic within the everyday, and the potential of a narrative through setting, lighting, atmosphere, objects and detail. This artist book contains 23 photo etchings, signed by the artist, size 21 x 37cm, printed on Coventry 340 gm paper. The edition is 16, plus 2 Artist Proofs, 2 Hors de Commerce and 1 Printers Proof.
