[ISEA2009] Artists Statement: Edward George & Anna Piva (Flow Motion) – Promised Lands, 2009

Artists Statement

Mixed media performance presentation

Promised Lands is a multimedia project exploring the idea of the promised land in relation to accounts of contemporary and historical migration. The promised land is the founding trope of the migrant adventure, which confers a larger than life, metaphysical dimension on often life threatening journeys into newness. It is a figure of speech and writing, thinking and feeling, faith and necessity, found in popular and folk cultures both sacred and secular.  iniva.org/exhibitions_projects/2008/promised_lands
