throw a stone for the last stone throne

Solo exhibition by Netherlands based artist Johnny Bunting.

at 53 Beck Road

coal tar atop the altar
and at the altar
burnt coal tar
a face to face the north face
as smoke from the coal tar
faintly crowns the altar

round and round
and round we go

set light
at night
to see
the sea
as the pea green boat just floats
to sea
to see
sleeping dogs tell lies
and pigs can fly

as we go round
and round and round

in a boat with no end
a rope sewn
a stone thrown
and that stone throne

round and round
and round they go

just that empty boat to tow.
toe to toe with a boat full of chrome
to cast the kings last throne
at the spot
where the last thrown stone sat

but it was far from flat

mountain goats
watching a boat just float
watching that boat just afloat
to see
to sea
feasting on coal tar and the last fat
at the spot where a stone throne once sat
