Abstract (English)

The anthology's title is drawn from an analogy with physics, which refers to the critical threshold crossed by matter before it is drawn irreversibly into one of the universe's black holes. The essays were written by artists curators and critics on subjects which were originally the basis for four exhibitions at the Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff, in 1984-85. A variety of voices - poetic, fictive, narrative, critical and theoretical, occasionally collaged within individual essays - are integrated with or supported by graphic and photographic material. Biographical notes.
