Paul Robertson : The Potter’s Field

Lust and the Apple’s first set of exhibitions come into their final week of display. Paul Robertson introduces The Potter’s Field, a piece by Post-Urban artists Alexander and Susan Maris, containing nine pauper’s graves, one for each of the classical Muses, in the Garden at Lust & The Apple. The graves are simple mounds of bare earth, each marked with a single unadorned, white quartzite stone, sourced from Schiehallion – a ‘sacred mountain’ apocryphally linked to the Knights Templar.

The path between the graves and the paved square at one corner of the Field contain a ‘Temenos’. The public are invited to leave their own offerings to the deceased Muses within the Temenos.

The Potter’s Field is on show until the 19th April.
