A Small Subtraction from the River Add
The River Add runs through Argyll in the west of Scotland. To one side of the river is the ruined hill fort of Dunadd, a royal stronghold of the old Gaelic kingdom of Dalriada, and to the other side is Moine Mhor, The Great Moss.
Thomas A. Clark lives in the small fishing village of Pittenweem, on the east coast of Scotland. Among his books are Yellow & Blue and The Hundred Thousand Places. In 1973, he and the artist Laurie Clark founded Moschatel Press to produce artist’s books and poetry collections. In the summer months, they run Cairn, a project space for minimal and conceptual art (www.cairneditions.co.uk). Clark’s work often appears as installations or interventions in galleries, public spaces or in the landscape. A large collection of such work was installed throughout New Stobhill Hospital in Glasgow.
