Justine Blau

The Circumference of the Cumanán Cactus (2010)

In a commission for Manchester’s Piccadilly railway station Justine Blau created a series of nine, at first glance wild and exotic landscapes in which man plays no role. On further examination one discovers that these imaginary worlds are assembled  from photos that Blau found on the internet. She took her inspiration from the drawings and paintings that were made to acquaint the home front with the discoveries of explorers, from Columbus to Captain Cook with their new worlds, images which were at one and the same time scientific evidence, eye-witnesses’ accounts, and the source of myths.
