Termitaria II Fragmented Islands (2001)

 
termite butterfly book

This was the second exhibition resulting from an artist in residence at Ballidu in the wheatbelt of Western Australia. Many fragments of 850 romance novels eaten by termites were arranged across the space of the old Masonic hall. Abandoned termite mounds found in the surrounding countryside were dragged in to accompany the disintegrating texts of Termitaria.
