The Essence of Continents

Ready made installation
70 x 30 x 10 cm

Each continent exists within a defined ontological “container”, assigning to each a distinct set of attributes and meanings, which is what really happens. Continents are just pieces of land mass that people have given various names, as well as cultural and geopolitical set of traits and meanings. Whenever you think of any of the continents – Africa, South America, Antarctica, or any other – an entire narrative of things comes to mind. So, these containers are supposed to enclose these narratives.
