A meditation on art, identity and decay, with inspiration from WG Sebald, Sappho, Werner Heldt, Anne Carson and Edgar Degas.
“We are always looking and looking away at the same time.” —W.G. Sebald
“Even though you are approaching Sappho in translation, that is no reason you should miss the drama of trying to read a papyrus torn in half or riddled with holes or smaller than a postage stamp–brackets imply a free space of liminal adventure.” —Anne Carson
Aaron Cockle self publishes the mini comic Annotated as well as many others zines. He’s interested in combinations of text and image narrative and abstraction in art and history.
