Elisheva Biernoff
My work investigates myths, fictions and fantasies, and how we encounter and interpret them. Heroes go on quests and explorers venture into the unknown, but most of us watch the action from afar. We encounter myths indirectly, embedded in mundane forms – magazine articles, postcards from far-away places, photographs, fugitive and tenuous scraps. I’m looking for where the spectacular and the everyday meet – Amelia Earhart’s beat-up shoes, an undelivered postcard from El Dorado.
