“A certain territory of ground adjoining unto the forest [which] was once 

forest-land and afterwards disafforested by the perambulations made for the

severing of the new forests from the old”

John Manwood’s definition of Purlieu in his book Treatise of the Lawes of the forest (1598)

This special edition of Matzine is kindly funded by Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art [GoMA], for publication during the Objective festival; ‘a city wide conversation on sculpture.’ This issue forms part of Gayle Meikle’s artwork commission for the festival. This special, collaborative edition of Matzine sought to experiment with curating and editing, with regards to Purlieu, and the common grounds between art & architecture. The result is part zine, part art object, part storytelling.
