A Seven-day


A Seven-day is a narrative in colour and prose-poem, by the artist Eddie Farrell (Slade School 2004) and writer Jane Borodale. From distinct positions, they found a shared interest in the Foundling Hospital which provided the inspiration for the book. The work unfolded gradually in correspondence and dialogue, and keeping the shape of the work open to change throughout the process was vital to its collaborative nature. The three archetypal characters (mother, infant, father,) speak briefly over the spread of one week, imbedded in Eddie Farrell’s layered, lyrical colour and texture.
