LUPER AT COMPTON VERNEY: PETER GREENAWAY. Compton Very, Warkwickshire, 2004. 136 pp. with numerous col. ills. 23 x 20 cm. ISBN 0954654544 In English.
At Compton Verney, renowned filmmaker Peter Greenaway revisits the setting of his first feature film, "The Draughtsman's Contract" (1982), a thriller played out against the backdrop of an English country estate. In this setting Greenaway introduces the figure of Tulse Luper (sometime hero of his earlier films and possibly Greenaway's alter ego) to act as a guide and interpreter of events and their impact on the house and landscape. As a writer, collector, cataloguer and professional list-maker, Luper is fascinated by traces, systems, maps, numbers and artifacts. The exhibition explores the connections between objects, events and ideas, re-peopling the house and bringing the collections and building to life. At the heart of the exhibition is a collection of 92 suitcases that Luper has supposedly abandoned on his travels. the contents provide clues to his existence, his obsessions, the people he has met, and the places he has visited. Upper outside corners of covers show light bumping. Book is otherwise in very good condition.
