Terence Main and John Ash (text), Terrestrial Tale, New York: Art et Industrie, 1996, cover illustration.
"It is perhaps the longest 'dying fall' in recent art-a Mahler's Ninth in bronze. It absorbs and justifies everything Main has done before."
Art et Industrie, New York, 1996
We would like to thank the artist for his assistance with the description of the artwork, the exhibition history and literature, as well as the use of the Art et Industrie installation photo by Dennis Cowley and his original illustrative drawing (not included in lot).
