The Borley rectory writings on the wall is one of the most interesting manifestation of the famous Borley rectory haunting, which was probably the first case of ghost hunting in history. they believed the writings had come from a young deceased catholic woman who wanted her body to be discovered and receive a proper christian burial ceremony. she was trying to communicate with Marianne, wife of the reverend Lionel Foyster, the couple living in the rectory in October 1930. we can read “ Marianne… please help get” and “ Marianne light mass prayers”. Marianne wrote that she couldn’t understand some of the writings.

from “Portraits” project (1984)
By Patrick Tosani
I saw some of these self-portraits in a book about the artist more generally, but this was the project I really dug.  I wish I knew more about it, though…I didn’t get to really read through the book, and his website is in French, and in Flash, so Google Translate isn’t really doing its job too well.  If anyone is able to find an artist’s statement or a press release for this show, I’d love to have a link to it!  Thanks!
See more of Tosani’s work at his official site (hope you can read French!).
