In collaboration with George Catsi
A response to the cultural, historical, social or metaphorical aspect of Rookwood Cemetery, as seen by the artists.
A contemplative work that reflects on the notion of being laid to rest. White ribbons a sign of mourning, draw us back and forth between the earth and the bed. The clang of a bell, traditionally a noisy reminder of an active life.
Rhythmic thrusts upon the frame
Birth, pain, push, gain
Cot, bed, bunk, weeping
A third of life, turning sleeping
A marriage vow, a marriage name
More rhythmic thrusts upon the frame
Lying, crawling, running, fast
Our infinite breathes don't last
Take all of death that we do dread
Let it pass on our final bed.
