Secondary Insc: Inscribed recto upper left in fibre-tipped pen 'Area of attention. Counter view of the institutional fabric of society through the perceptions of "the symbolic individual'. Lurky Place forms a symbolic mould scraped by a surrounding institutional fabric but distanced from it by the state of alienation that it has been left in. Thus the Lurky Place is used as a vehicle to present the "individual' in a territory of counter imagery'.
