'Hoard: The Ethics of Acquisition' (2012)
Print-on-demand, open edition, A4, perfect bound, 273p., b&w images
'Hoard' is the reconfiguration of an archaeological report from the collections of SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) Library. The work is concerned with the perception of excavation as an uncovering of the truth. 'Hoard' presents a landscape where notions of ownership are questioned. In its presentation of 742 looted archaeological sites and wounded landscapes, the document constructs different meanings and histories from the site images.
'Hoard' (2012) was shortlisted for AGYU 'Artists' Book of the Moment' prize, February 2014.
