The Salamander & The Swan

A sculptural intervention, two pamphlets and a reading produced in collaboration with Conor Cooke for the exhibition and conference 'Pilgrims & Pilgrimage' at Govan Old Church, Glasgow, 2018

Two sets of stories find a precarious resting place atop the pews. Written at a great distance from the other, each makes attempts at mobility, but these are inverted or introverted by the characters they evoke. Loving acts of labour cross the water line. Complications are to be expected when ingesting or inhabiting any part of the work.
