Nina Tichava – Borrowed Landscapes [Erected]

Taking familiar images and altering them just enough to become new and unexpected, this series by Nina Tichava invites the observer to take a second look and reconsider beliefs and assumptions that are perhaps generations long. Drawing literal screens over images of the land and American landmarks represents, concretely and metaphorically, holding onto ideas that obscure our views of reality.

“As the ‘marvels’ of the past have transformed into the mundane, and our monuments become diminutive while cities rise around them, we’re confronted with the actuality that our picturesque landscapes change every era—just as we do. Our ability to remain flexible within these shifting landscapes and to recognize the impermanence of our experience is significant. What we choose to save and treasure will determine our shared future.”
