Shipwreck is a sustained investigation into loss and disruption, both in the landscapes of the emotions and in the world at large. A parallel narrative composed of images drawn from 19th century French newspapers alongside text, it uses the art of the cut up to explore how things fall apart, and how disaster might lead to unlikely, tentative new wholes.

David Dernie is an artist and architect and Olivia Laing is the author of To the River, The Trip to Echo Spring and The Lonely City (Canongate).
