Detailed project information will be published in due course.
The project takes its name from a lyric in the song ‘West Country Girl’ by Nick Cave.
“With a crooked smile
And a heart-shaped face
Comes from the West country
Where the birds sing bass
She’s got a house-big heart
Where we all live
And plead and counsel and forgive
Her widow’s peak, her lips I’ve kissed
Her glove of bones at her wrist
That I have held in my hand”
The memory of a hand, that toucher and maker, the tool of our greatest efforts, capable of building and destroying, caressing or slapping. Innocent in itself but a point of focus, adoration or blame.
Together with the materials of the project which will include sound and vision, static and in motion the site will also feature references and inspirations.
The ‘Awen’ that appears is a neo-druidic symbol.
‘The three lines relate to earth, sea and air; body, mind and spirit; or love, wisdom and truth. It is also said that the Awen stands for not simply inspiration, but for inspiration of truth; without Awen one cannot proclaim truth. The three foundations of Awen are the understanding of truth, the love of truth, and the maintaining of truth’
A fondness for symbols and a desire to reinterpret /re-associate them may return in the progress of this project.
Contributions are encouraged from those wishing to share creative output that might not fit into their main practice and as such wish to fly under the radar.
