Boy’s Art #7: British Fleet, Falkland Islands, 2002
I’m very intrigued by Kozloff’s work — by her play with depictions of space and her interpretation of the history of place. Her Boy’s Art series is based on maps from the age of colonialism. She merges western cartography with indigenous map-making traditions, images of conquest with art works created by the conquered. Here, Native American ledger drawings are superimposed on the hand-drawn map. Migration, relocation, and colonialism are all addressed in this multilayer scene.
