A place that exists only in moonlight - Katie Paterson
"A place that exists only in moonlight" is a book which contains a series of artworks to exist in the imagination. Comprising over one hundred short texts, each concerns the landscape, the universe, or an expanded sense of earthly and geological time. These poetic phrases take shape in the mind of whoever reads the words, and so become an expression of the idea itself.
The cover is printed with cosmic dust; a mixture of moondust, dust from Mars, shooting stars, ancient meteorites and asteroids.
A place that exists only in moonlight: Katie Paterson & JMW Turner - the largest UK exhibition of Scottish artist Katie Paterson to date, paired with a group of works by JMW Turner - runs at Turner Contemporary from Saturday 26th January until Monday 6th May 2019.
