East

Part of a body of works including Chintz and From China to Chintz.

In its various permutations the work has strived to keep a narrow balance between revealing and obscuring information, history and meaning: a balance that navigates a path between beauty and pain; the atmospheric and the real; the poetic and the literal. A work that rests on histories of translation, its re-siting has also been a form of further taxing its readings.
