This new chapbook has been published as part of the exhibition If Wishes Were Thrushes, Beggars Would Eat Birds by Stuart Whipps at Dundee Contemporary Arts in autumn 2020. At the heart of this project is an exploration of a selection of gardens, and characters and stories connected to them. Through installation, photography, film and sound, Whipps explores ideas of cultivated landscapes through different timeframes and personal narratives connected to specific sites and materials. Speaking to, thinking through, and stepping off from some of the ideas in Whipps' new body of work, Notes from the Belly of the Beast is a new collaborative text by Sean Lynch and Michele Horrigan. Drawing together ruminations on global pandemics, sculptural reparations, mineral extraction and storytelling through exhibition-making, the writers craft a beguiling invitation for us to re-examine the makeup of the landscapes around us.
