In Most Tides an Island
The four interrelated exhibitions of In Most Tides an Island took the form of a shipwrecked novel. Occasionally, its flotsam washes up on foreign shores: images, allegories and scraps of lore. In this installation of salvage from a vanished book, photographs and text fragments evoke tableaux of exile and solitude in the digital age. Seductive, disorienting, informative and allegorical, In Most Tides an Island is at once a tropical-gothic fiction, a vision of post-Soviet queer life, and a meditation on isolation and desire. Shot along Baltic, Caribbean and Black Sea coastlines, these distant landscapes and isolated figures form an imagistic salvage from the sunken ship Solitude.
