In 2000 Iain Sinclair set out to recreate Clare’s walk away from madness. He wanted to understand his bond with the poet and escape the gravity of his London obsessions. Accompanied on this journey by his wife Anna (who shares a connection with Clare), the artist Brian Catling and magus Alan Moore, Sinclair’s quest for Clare becomes an investigation into madness, sanity and the nature of the poet’s muse. And this is echoed throughout the installation. His book, Edge of the Orison will be made available throughout the exhibition.
‘Brilliant . . . amusing, alarming and poignant. An elegy for an already lost English landscape. Magnificent and urgent’. Robert Macfarlane, Times Literary Supplement.
‘A sensitive, beautifully rendered portrait . . . a feast, a riddle, a slowly unravelling conundrum . . . a love-letter to British Romanticism’. The Independent
‘Sinclair walks every inch of his wonderful novels and psychogeographies, pacing out huge word-courses like an architect laying out a city on an empty plain’. J. G. Ballard, The Observer.
