The politics of fuel laid bare...

Walk at dusk with the ghosts of John Clare, Orwell and Chatwin into the contours of a censored past and a rapidly decaying present. A cost of living crisis that has been controlling and crippling the edgelands for decades.

Developing the deep research and emotion of Boundary Songs, the focus here is on the fractured terrain of Whitehaven and echoes the restless narrator of Sebald's Rings of Saturn, who connects a paper-laden office with a distant childhood, 'to gather into itself the pallor of the fading light'.
