While on the residency with Crew, which is very enjoyable, we all had to dash to Frameries, near Mons, where Eric had to take part in a panel at the Fabrique du ThÃ©Ã¢tre:
As it was in French, I didn’t feel too rude to get out my laptop (nearly everyone around me had one on their laps, so my cover wasn’t blown). I used the time to get round, finally to presenting the three stone circles I visited in Cumbria, side by side at the same scale. I thought they might look a little like Francis Bacon’s ‘Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion‘.
Left to right, they are Long Meg and Her Daughters (see previous entry), Birkrigg and Swineside. Despite the seemingly devout title of Bacon’s triptych, I always found it an atheistic or even pagan work.
