Several months ago I was invited by the internationally acclaimed artist and author, Quintan Ana Wikswo to record voice over on several short stories that were to form part of a wider project by the artist entitled, Prophecy of Place.
In the project, Wikswo combines original text, photography, installation, video and brings together collaborating composers and choreographers in a dynamic exhibition that also includes live performance.
The source of the work lies in a variety of global sites that once bore witness to crimes against humanity. Prophecy of Place spans seven countries, eight centuries and nine languages.
Using artifacts such as battlefield cameras and military typewrites, Wikswo's work is a startling encounter with atrocity that raises questions, serves as resistance and memorial.
