“History’s Shadow” the work of David Maisel casts new light on the objects of Antiquity


Sculptures, vases, votive objects… shaped the ancient world, these objects actually “created” the world; to this day, in museums and galleries, they haunt our own. David Maisel describes the series: “The x-rays have been culled from museum conservation archives, re-photographed and re-worked. Through the x-ray process, the artworks of origin become de-contextualized, yet acutely alive and renewed. The series concerns the dual processes and intertwined themes of memory and excavation.”
