"And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
(Rev. 8: 10-11)
"Wormwood is first of all an expression of human hankering for other worlds and other pople, it is an attempt to discover and save one's hopes: a breath of air that can lead a man to what is unknown, extraordinary. Wormwood is a challenge, an attempt to overcome a world of our existence, a human struggle with destiny, with creative act."
(by Ewa Wójciak)
"In the long, thin attic room at Glasgow's Third Eye Centre, spectacularly lit by flickering candles and spotlights, scenes of real life - like a meeting on a train - became grotesque. Through effects like this, and the clever use of often simple images, the company created a dark, nightmarish world peopled by desperate characters."
