Artist's book. Pages bear colour images and captions. Many of the images include paper butterflies pinned or suspended.
The book "is concerned with the past and the manner in which it intersects and affects perceptions of the present. Drawing particular inspiration from the meaning of the terms "native", "migratory" and "hybrid", and their use in relation to exile and home, the book is the first part of a "nature library" series I am developing. This series addresses the themes of betweenness embodied by displaced and diasporic populations using Victorian archival methodologies, museological objects and institutional forms of diplay, as well as 19th century botanical wildlife illustrators. In this book, the butterflies represent the many parallel lives that have lived and lost. Momentarily they overcome the brutal nature of their extinction, as semingly disparate histories come together to form a rich tapestry of connection" -- information provided by the artist.
