Produced alongside the group exhibition Waterlog, this publication provides an overview of this multifaceted project, which featured specially-commissioned works by Alexander and Susan Maris, Simon Pope, Marcus Coates, Tacita Dean, Guy Moreton and Alec Finlay.
Drawing inspiration from the writings of the author W.G. Sebald, the exhibition consisted of a series of forays into the imaginative topography and cultural history of East Anglia.
A visual record of the various artists’ works, the companion publication adds a number of commissioned texts, including typically inventive contributions from artist Alec Finlay, a new poem, East, by Matthew Hollis, and essays by writers Robert Macfarlane and Brian Dillon.
The book also reprints two texts dedicated to Sebald’s memory: Backwaters: Norfolk Fields by George Szirtes, and Tacita Dean’s eponymous visual essay on the author.
