TINA, in which leather, bark-paper and drawing come together in the form of an accordion book, is informed by documented instances of natural mummification in conditions of extreme heat and cold (in Pompei following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius or in the case of Ötzi found in a glacier in South-Tyrol) while cheekily riffing on the conservative politician Margaret Thatcher’s now infamous utterance, “There is no alternative.”
