Being and time III: Paradiso : for cello and dice / Rosalind Page.

Library shelf no. 787.4/PAG 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

This is the third work in the Being and Time triology, inspired by works by the Australian-Latvian painter Imants Tillers.

A poetic diegesis on the idea of paradiso and its anagram, diaspora, the three frames unfold from symbols and text embedded within the visual narrative of Tiller's work:
1. We are dreaming
2. I had nowhere to go
3. Out of sight of Polaris, not yet lost

Being and Time III: Paradiso is dedicated to Irena Sprogis (Katalimovs) born 1924 and in memory of Janis Sprogis 1921-2009. Born in Latvia, their lives disrupted by the Second World War, fleeing as refugees from their homeland they found refuge in Australia. Their son and grandsons owe them a debt of gratitude that can only be repaid by a continual struggle for peace and harmony for all of humanity.
