Die gedig as 'n vreemdeling se graf
(The poem as a stranger's grave)

Artwork date(s): 2010

Alwyn Roux


Description: The artist's book is a copy of a poem and the contents of the poem are explicated on an x-ray. The poem suggests that one is buried in the poem: 'No one has seen you again after I buried you in the poem.' The x-ray, which is a depiction of a man's leg and foot, creates the idea that the artist's book is a real grave and that the viewer can see into the chest.
