Jean-Luc Godard said:

“a story should have a beginning, a middle and an end,
but not necessarily in that order”

 

For most of my post childhood / youth I felt life as a series of fragments – joined together by time, by circumstance, by love, fear, hope and a feeling that whilst experiencing existence as a fragmentary condition – through art the fragments can take on a structure that gives reassurance and meaning.

In my 20s I created a porous document called fragments and now as I have begun my 50s I find myself doing something else that I call fragments but now with a greater sense of purpose, and a deeper connection with others.

53 Fragments / in five parts – a mosaic, a kaleidoscope, a patch-work about existence.

Part 1 – creation / birth

Part 2 – childhood & youth

Part 3 – early adulthood & middle age

Part 4 – old age

Part 5 – death / re-birth

It brings together pictures, words and music – by a collection of  poets, visual artists and musicians.

It juxtaposes their responses to the themes mentioned – their exploration, through their art, of the gamut of a person’s life (from the womb to the tomb).
