MOUNTAIN

All photographs by Sarah Walker

"The plates converged like the skull of an infant, and at their boundary they buckled, and I was born..."

Mountain is the story of a man in pieces. Adrift in grief, he becomes fixated by the idea of hiking up a mountain.

 

The man’s journey up the mountain opens precipitously outward, to encompass not just his own voice, but the voice of the mountain, the wind, of a planet crying out for what it’s losing and what it’s already lost.

Co-created with performer André Jewson, Mountain is a hymn to the transformative power of grief; to the wonder of the unknown.
