Anton Ginzburg: “Terra Corpus”

Russian-born artist Anton Ginzburg talks about his exhibition "Terra Corpus," which juxtaposes ancient legends and myths with very real contemporary Eurasian catastrophes. It's on view at the Blaffer Art Museum through March 15.

Born in 1974 in what was then Leningrad, in Soviet-era Russia, Anton Ginzburg is interested in exploring the landscape of his former homeland, both as a documentarian and as a kind of psychic explorer of history (real and mythological). In the video above, Ginzburg talks with Houston Public Media’s Troy Schulze about the two projects At the Back of the North Wind and Walking the Sea, part one and two of a trilogy of works in film, photography, sculpture and painting that explore the mythical site of Hyperborea (a kind of northern version of the lost city of Atlantis) and the catastrophic destruction of the Aral Sea, once one of the four largest inland bodies of water in the world, now 95% depleted.
