Xavier Cortada, “Vincennes,” archival ink on paper (signed, numbered, limited-edition print | edition of 150), 11″ x 14″, 2007.
Xavier Cortada, recipient of a 2006-2007 National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers fellowship, traveled to Antarctica to implement a series of projects and installations. While there, the Miami artist created “ice paintings” using sea ice, glacier and sediment samples provided to him by scientists working in Antarctica. The artist titled the works on paper by randomly selecting the names of geographic features from a map of the continent that inspired their creation.
