Fragments of Lost Rivers’, is an ongoing artistic project initiated by artist John Holt who commissioned musician Alex Monk to construct a sound work as part of a ceramic installation. Ultimately developing into a multi-media outcome (sound/film/sculptural forms), ‘Fragments’ is to be presented as a large scale experience within a structured environment in the formation of a labyrinth or maze defined by hundreds of ceramic fragments forming a labyrinthine walkway leading to a visual core of film by Annabel McCourt. Monk’s accompanying audio ‘fragments’ include field recordings from the River Thames, River Lea, Phong Nha cave, Vietnam and vocals by Alex Monk & Serenella Noseda.

The work raises issues of our environment and the significance that nature has in informing and symbolizing our mythic understanding of our lives. It looks at questions of how we treat the earth and particularly the water upon which we all so deeply depend.

‘Fragments of Lost Rivers’ touches the deepest levels in us all of our image and symbol making propensities. It questions the ‘scientific’ approach to time, measurement and truth making and questions the loss of our beautiful rivers; sources of so many civilizations and cultures, revered by so many and yet sometimes forgotten.
