  1. David Mondedeu – Further South than Planned

    Further South than Planned is an artist book, consisting of 35 free-standing, hand-pulled, polymer photogravures printed by the artist. It is structured as a novel, divided up into three chapters which correspond to separate territories and/or countries, time periods, and emotional states. Traveling down the backbone of Africa, from the northern desertlands in The Sahrawi refugee camps in The Western Sahara, all the way south to Mozambique, to return to the heart of central Africa in Uganda which lies on the equator.

    “Do you see him? Do you see the story? Do you see anything? It seems I am trying to tell you a dream—making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream-sensation, that commingling of absurdity, surprise, and bewilderment in a tremor of struggling revolt, that notion of being captured by the incredible which is the very essence of dreams…no, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one’s existence—that which makes its truth, its meaning—its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream—alone.” Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
