WATERFALLS

245 x 170 mm (84pp)
Cased numbered edition of 75 with extra handwritten poem (out of print).
In glassine sleeve, printed & bound by Colin Sackett.

This publication of the complete WATERFALLS bookwork (companioning the etruscan red shifts) at last presents both books that compose the poetic project her/story: eye

"Excavating saying, riddle, lore, tale, song, lament, elegy, drawn from Irish mythological, ancestral and folk traditions, socio-political history, (particularly the Great Famine of 1845-52, the clearances, dispossession and exile), as well as personal mappings, meditations, family oral histories, her/story:eye is a multi-dimensional, visceral performance, interrogating its own trans/formations as it floods and explodes acoustic-aural-visual-verbal-sculptural force fields across red shifts and WATERFALLS in a passionate, radical, physicalised installation of languagings im/possibilities."
