Kirin Quest, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark, tells the story of this quest and invites the reader on a journey between imagination, fiction and reality that connects different worlds and times.

The book weave a web of impressions of a region, of exchange and trade, gods and rocks, nature and culture, East and West, present, pasts and futures. Like its namesake, this book is hybrid in nature, part travelogue, part artist’s book, and just as much the narrative of a dream of discovering the world and the rewriting of a temporary utopia.
