About this title


Without text, expressing himself directly through a brilliant sequence of two hundred drawings, the artist Klimowski has conjured up a dream narrative which is as gripping as any thriller, a black movie without dialogue, set in a mysterious modern city. An artist, perhaps a writer, is musing blankly over his notebook, and as he falls asleep his imagination projects a disturbing world of imprisoned flying 'spirits', with book-leaf wings, one of whom flies to rescue his fellow creatures from the depository of a sinister collector-cum-curator, where they are being held like specimens in glass cabinets. Captured himself, the doppelganger is then freed from his prison of the mind by a beautiful woman spirit, to fly back into the wakening consciousness of the artist himself.
A wordless novel, The Depository is open to many interpretations - political, sexual, psychological. Looking through Klimowski's powerful drawings many readers will recognize a visual analysis of the power of human possession and domination that is unsettling and unforgettable.
