Mark Alice Durant

(USA, 1955)

Located at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego and the Casa de la Cultura Municipal, Mark Alice Durant’s installations, Treasures from the Potato Famine/Tesoros de las escasez de papas en Irlanda and Encuentro/Encounter, each dealt with the issue of collective and personal history, and public and private self. Although distinct in quality, the two installations form a dialogue by way of Durant’s photographs that occupy both spaces, as well as his bilingual newspaper produced for the project that viewers were invited to read and take a copy of.
