Illuminators: The Power of Naming
mixed media drawings on paper
The Power of Naming is a series of twelve drawings and thirteen texts. This work is part of a collaborative project with the poet-artist Marina Tëmkina. The installation of drawings contemplates the history of naming a new continent, America, in 1507 and how in 2007 two artists reinterpret this myth of discovering America as a part of their personal, biographical stories.
