PAGES is coordinated by artists and researchers John McDowall and Chris Taylor. Founded in 1998 and operating around the hub of an annual Artists’ Book Fair, the initiative has provided numerous and wide-ranging opportunities for the development and awareness of the book as primary medium in art practice. Manifestations such as exhibitions, workshops, open calls and curated projects have facilitated experimentation, dissemination and engagement for audience and makers. In 2019 in association with the Fair’s host venue, TheTetley, and with the support of Arts Council England, PAGES has under taken a major new project.

Camaradas MX-UK 2019 Exhibition

The Mexican Embassy’s Camaradas MX-UK / Comrades UK-MX 2019 Exhibition will take place at the Menier Gallery, London, March 12th-16th. Cat Miller & Rafael MC have been selected to exhibit a collaborative piece entitled: ‘Holiness of the Heart’, 2019, Paper cut-out & collage. The artwork features a poem entitled: ‘Holiness of the Heart’ by British writer Cat Miller that has been translated into different languages and will be accompanied by a limited edition Artists Book / Zine  featuring the poem’s translations. The purpose of the poem is to remind people of their spiritual wellbeing. Holiness of the Heart has been translated into French, Spanish and Italian.

Language is pivotal in the areas of human rights protection, good governance, peace building, reconciliation, and sustainable development.

The A1 wing-shaped diptych is a concrete poetry art piece inspired by Luciano De Crescenzo’s great quote: “We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another”.

Heart-Supported Mind

ROOTS&WINGSLogo

Twilight is the inky blue-black, steely-cool lens of the logical mind

The rational left-hemisphere that’s always asking: Who? What? Where? When? And Why?

Generally, over-focusing 24-7 upon all the little things one should have said, or could have done

Inner-narratives on constant rewind, sometimes for years, decades or even lifetimes

Retrospective key frames in ones timeline robbed of fun

Completely oblivious or unaware, that one was born with a Right-Hemisphere

Offering an additional lens of self-compassion, via heart-supported mind

Like a prism of decision-making processes that are mutually beneficent and kind

Via a hemispherical union, of left and right, both online at the same time

Co-operating as a ‘Whole Mind’

Balancing the polarity of individuation via an authentic heart connection:

With each other, the natural world, the cosmos and ‘The All There Is’

As a direct extension of Source-Energy, each of us, a little piece of Primordial-Qi

A metaphysical integration, providing meaning, purpose and Inner-Peace

Awakening ones third-eye, that can scry a previously unknown spectrum

Discover a parallel dimension

Refracting the piercing white light of inner-sight

The other side of the rainbow crescent moon
