Paul Conneally & Camilla Beresford 2017
‘The images detached from every aspect of life merge into a common stream in which the unity of that life can no longer be recovered. Fragmented views of reality regroup themselves into a new unity as a separate pseudo-world that can only be looked at. The specialization of images of the world has culminated in a world of autonomized images where even the deceivers are deceived. The spectacle is a concrete inversion of life, an autonomous movement of the nonliving.’ – Guy Debord
The original photograph was taken by the landscape architect and historian Camilla Beresford at Stone Court’, Knole Park – the elk antlers are prehistoric and found in an Irish peat bog.
‘UNIFIED’ flushed across my inward eye as soon as I saw the original.
