As I travel through the mountain these spears\, these cr osses\, these trefoils\, these leafy hearts\, these composite crosses\, the se triangles\, these creatures facing each other and opposing each other to mark their eternal conflict\, their divisions\, their duality\, awaken str ange memories in me. I seemed to read everywhere a story of childbirth in w ar\, a story of genesis and chaos… There is... a music of numbers and this music which reduces the chaos of the material world to its principles expla ins by a kind of awesome mathematics how nature is ordered and how she dire cts the birth of forms that she pulls out of chaos and everything I saw see med to correspond to a number – the statues\, the forms\, the shadows\, alw ays presented these recurring numbers…

The exhibition's title deri ves from a particular British Paleolithic site of the same name. Such a spe cific title allows the exhibition to bind together disparate threads runnin g through the works presented\, many of which utilize essential materials l ike raw wood\, wax\, plaster\, cloth and torn paper. Several works concern primitive crafts like weaving\, tool-making\, and altar-making\, while othe rs specifically address the idea of antiquity. Overall\, each work possesse s a certain rawness\, either in materials\, marks\, or content.
