Dana Levy – Emerging from the Swamp


This work was conceived during an artist residency in the Everglades. The remains of a European explorer’s studio are staged submerged in the swamp in the Everglades. Antique artifacts: a desk, bookshelves, maps, collected shells and skulls, and a globe, all appear semi-submerged in the mosquito infested swamp. The fate of the explorer is left as a mystery. The video and photos were shot by the artist sitting in a canoe in the swamp. In the video a snake slithers across the table.

Dana Levy (Israel) lives and works in New York, USA.
