“Repatriation is only a supplementary subterfuge, in order to make out as though nothing had happened, and to indulge in a retrospective hallucination”
Jean Baudrillard, Simulations
The Repatriation of the Stones
On July 24th 2006, I took 24 stones from the pebbled beach at Lulworth Cove in Dorset, England. On May 9th 2010, in an attempt to assuage my guilt, I returned them.
