Excavations / 1993

As a child growing up in Zambia, the son of a miner, I loved to burrow in the earth. I remember digging tunnels and the intimate sexual sense of lying under the ground surrounded by redness remains with me. It was my earliest experience of reconciling self with that which was external, and of recognising the potential of matter to transmute and speak anew.
