The gods that live in buckets

Work in progress which relates to writing and artefacts inspired by a fictitious island in the English Channel facing immersion by the sea. The work arose out of an invitation to participate in ‘Island” by SWAP Editions, which has continued through writing and sourced images as Lomea.

The title "The gods that live in buckets" is adapted from one of Italo Calvino’s texts in “Invisible Cities”, which talks about the interdependency between a city and the subterranean water below it (the city of Isaura, Thin cities 1). The installation of artefacts shown in the photos is growing and more pieces are being added to it: it has been on-going project during lockdown.
