|The narrative of Irfaran emerges from the author's travels
across the Baltic States, northern Germany and Italy, as well as in the UK.
Tracing a lineage of Wanderschaft back to the Middle Ages, this travelling artist passes through the Baltic States down to Odessa,
from West Germany to the former East, from Swansea across to The Mumbles and then on to northern England, seeking to find
meaning in the act of arriving, as both tourist and worker. |
From these journeys, impressions of the places visited are initially recorded in photographs and writings, and subsequently developed into Souvenir Sculptures.
Brigitte Jurack's sculptural works, travel writings and monochrome photographs provide moments of revelation triggered by the peripheral
and neglected architecture of modern cities pressured by tourism. This book is illustrated with over 30 black and white plates,
together with photographic documentation of the sculptures.
The sculptures are plaster, gesso, timber, 30 sculptures each approximately 48x35x40cm.
