DOGS AND WATER: Drawn & Quarterly

Catalog Number: 
book, Nilsen, Anders
Date: 
may 2007
Abstract: 
"Dogs & water chronicles a piece of a lonely journey, without origin or destination. A young man wandering a nameless path ahas only a stuffed bear as a companion, which inertly endures his desperation,anger and musings along the way. The landscape is cold and bleak with few land marks, and offers only precarious encounters with animals and armed men. These concerning the killed and injured. He finds acceptance with a pack of dogs, though their nature is wild and their potential threat is as unsettling as the sudden presence of a massive pipeline on the horizon. In a dream like state,the endless land becomes a vast body of water where his boar is destroyed and his body floats in a subconscious space . On land, the road disappears and only blind circumstance remains. All is uncertain and all can be lost, but he continues on regardless."
