Julian Charrière has generously donated this extraordinary rotogravure engraving on handmade paper, produced in a small edition of 25 prints. The engraving was produced from a photograph of Charrière's installation Tropisme, which features in the exhibition.

The installation is a series of refrigerated showcases containing plants entombed within a sheath of ice. Each plant is held in stasis, in a state between life and death, so that it might be preserved indefinitely. Because they are preserved in suspended animation by human interaction, the plants will remain "immortal" for only as long as electricity is supplied to the refrigeration units. Charrière therefore refers to them as "living fossils".

This edition is available now from the Parasol unit shop and each is signed, dated and numbered by the artist.
