Mountain – Lemn Sissay

+ + +

Duchamp’s found object Fountain becomes art and so are my files.
These files are government public records and yet have never been seen
in public. For the first eighteen years of my life reports were written on
my existence every three months. I was stolen from my family and I was
experimented on. I made a documentary about this search on BBC
Radio 4 in 2010. It concluded that my files had been lost by a digital
company called THE IRON MOUNTAIN.

I have recently received the files. I have chosen the pages to be printed
upon Fountain.
