‘Fatal Kadath Fatal’, Henning Bohl
After ‘Namenloses Grauen’ and ‘Kadath Fatal,’ ‘Fatal Kadath Fatal’ is the third publication by Henning Bohl for BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE.
A sequel to ‘Kadath Fatal,’ ‘Fatal Kadath Fatal’ takes up a slower pace in narration. Conceived as a leporello the book gathers a succession of 18 drawings that circle around one single motive: Two conical hennins glide along through space. Only light and contrast change, and the veils of the cornets take up peculiar shapes despite the supposed absence of gravity and friction. On the will of their own the conical hennins return in their present form as a medley of elements from former works by Bohl.
The title of the book is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's ‘The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath’ (1926/27), an epic tale that examines the realm of human dreams by combining elements of horror and fantasy.
‘Fatal Kadath Fatal’ Special Edition: An edition of 20 + 8AP, includes both ‘Kadath Fatal’ and ‘Fatal Kadath Fatal’ books and a silkscreened sheet pasted on a tie-dyed scarf (different colors are available), signed and numbered.
