Nadine Kessler – who made the beautiful book-design for The Long Weekend in Alice Springs recently designed this art catalogue for the French Artist Hubert Duprat who has something of a retrospective exhibition at MONA in Hobart.

Such patterns may be encoded into legends or hieratic dramas associated with specific sites and can be detected by analysing mythologised stories embedded in cultural sites, by analysing how a culture developed (and perverted) the use of primal tools and by noting what cultural groups do…
