Softcover, with Kraft paper jacket. Design by Bruce Connew and Catherine Griffiths, text by Bruce Connew, edition of 600 copies.

‘folded eggs’ emerged after a journey from my home in New Zealand to grandchildren in Santiago. It was an inadvertent project from images made without clear purpose in a country whose recent history I understood. My own country’s history became implicated.

‘folded eggs’ is an artist book, a modest meditation on history and memory, with 53 colour images made in Chile, from Valparaíso to Santiago, and a concise essay across Allende and Pinochet to New Zealand’s colonial wars.

It is a simple, tactile, soft-back artist book, printed offset on beautiful German paper with a wrap-around, Risograph-printed, Kraft-paper cover. The essay runs as a single line, below the images and centred in the book, so the essay neither begins at the start nor finishes at the end — the visual and textual reading is at once “filmic and poetic”.
