Details

The companion book to Andrew Kötting's film and art project, Edith Walks, about a walk from Waltham Abbey to St Leonards-on-Sea documenting a pilgrimage made in memory of Edith Swan Neck, the eleventh-century wife of King Harold II of England. Bits of King Harold's body were brought to Waltham for burial near the High Altar after the Battle of Hastings in 1066, and his hand-fast wife Edith Swan Neck is seen cradling him in a remarkable sculpture at Grosvenor Gardens on the seafront in St Leonards. The film reconnects the lovers after 950 years of separation. The 108-mile journey is interspersed with conversation between Alan Moore, Iain Sinclair and Edith Swan Neck, all key elements in the unfolding of the 'story'. The film received its London premiere at the Swedenborg Film Festival, November 2016, where Andrew Kötting was the guest judge. The book, Edith (The Chronicles) features new work by legendary writers Iain Sinclair and Alan Moore. Contributors: Andrew Kötting, Iain Sinclair, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Christian Johann Heinrich Heine, Ben Hopkins, Anonymous Bosch, Claudia Barton, Jem Finer, David Aylward & Anne Caron-Delion, John Clare, Nicholas Johnson, Gareth Evans, Alan Moore, Kristin O'Donnell, and Sarah Lloyd. Signed by author Andrew Kötting.
