'Cast in Stone' in PARSE, #16, Spring 2023

'Cast in Stone' presents observations on monuments and museums alongside commentary on artworks and accounts of chance encounters and daily life. Drawing on notebooks kept during a stay in Germany more than twenty yerars ago, Vladislavic finds a new path through the rubble of unfinished work. The essay arose during the 'Conviviality and Contamination' workshop, which travelled between Sweden and Germany in the autumn of 2022. All the work produced in that collaborative engagement appears in PARSE #16. Vladislavic's essay is accompanied by an artwork by Abrie Fourie.
