Maja A. Ngom
Encrusted Island explores possibilities of transforming something transient and organic into solidified and tenacious form, while keeping its original shape. The urge to preserve that, which is fragile and fleeting, becomes the driving force for the work and is articulated through photographs, sculptures and found objects all of which indicate a notion of absence. While drawing upon recurrence of signs and configurations, myths both collective and personal are told to map and investigate intangible family bonds and the sense of domesticity.
