Tree of Dawn: Translation as a Method (2022)

About this exposition

en
This research is part of my doctoral project Archetypes of Contamination, which focuses on the relationship between symbolic images and processes of environmental transformation. This exposition, Tree of Dawn, develops by looking for the correspondence between radioactive contamination and the traditional Latvian image of the Sun-Tree as found in the Dainas, an ancient form of poetry transmitted orally through songs. My artistic process uses a re-creation and re-interpretation of ritualistic practices. With a focus on radioactive contamination, my research looks at how the experience of contaminated spaces can be read through specific myths connected to the land to interfere with the creation of personal and collective realities. The exposition moves through methods of translation as a way of reflecting on the limits of knowledge, where translation is thought of in the wider senses of transposition, deciphering, decoding, and reading through.

Detta arbete är en del av mitt doktorandprojekt Archetypes of Contamination, som fokuserar på förhållandet mellan symboliska bilder och miljöomvandlingsprocesser. Expositionen, Tree of Dawn, utvecklas genom att söka efter beröringspunkter mellan radioaktiva föroreningar och den traditionella lettiska bilden av solträdet i Dainas, en gammal form av poesi som framförs muntligt i sång. Min konstnärliga process bygger på återskapande och omtolkningar av ritualer. I min forskning undersöker jag hur myter kan påverka upplevelsen och förståelsen av platser, som är radioaktivt förorenade. Expositionen rör sig genom översättningsprocesser som ett sätt att reflektera över kunskapens gränser. Översättning förstås här brett som överföring, dechiffrering, och avkodning.
