Falling Into Place
In this beautiful, limited-edition artist’s book, British artists Heather and Ivan Morison continue their inquiry into cultures of self-sufficiency and the topography of escape, bringing together sketches, drawings and an engrossing narrative: part science fiction, part history, part autobiography and part fairytale. The Morisons represented Wales at the 2007 Venice Biennale with their timber structures Pleasure Island and Fantasy Island, which were inspired by the hand-built shelters associated with the “back-to-the-land” movements of the ‘sixties and ‘seventies. As they write, “It got to the point where I just had to get out. That’s when I built my first escape vehicle.” Printed offset in an edition of 1,500 copies, with dust jacket with gold blocking.
