Rannoch Moor: s.p. (Maris), 2015
30 x 42cm full colour unique c-print showing one of the graves from the Potter's Field installation - this was the first exhibition in the Garden at LUST & THE APPLE. Each of 9 "graves" were simple mounds of bare earth, each marked with a single unadorned white quartzite stone, sourced from Schiehallion – a ‘sacred mountain’ apocryphally linked to the Knights Templar.
The path between the graves and the paved square at one corner of the Field contained a ‘Temenos’. The public are invited to leave their own offerings to the deceased Muses within the Temenos.
"Enter with reverence and respect for the nine Muses /who are buried in this Potter’s Field. /Do not desecrate their Memory. A Potter’s Field containing nine pauper’s graves, one for each of the classical Muses is found>"
The photograph shows one of the graves which is starting to be overgrown with weeds and one of the headstones. Unique. Signed on the bottom.
