"a truly extraordinary video triptych" —New York Times
Inspired by ocean gyres, Ellie Ga’s performance gathers sound recordings, photographs, video, interviews, and archival documents into a layered narrative—part essay, part storytelling—that often follows uncertain leads and takes unexpected turns. Gyre 4: Epitaphs explores ways that images on stone have come to represent, either deliberately or unintentionally, different dimensions of propaganda, resistance, and memorial.
Ellie Ga is a New York-born, Stockholm-based artist whose wide-ranging narratives intertwine extensive research with first-hand experiences. She is the author of Square Octagon Circle (Siglio Press) and Three Arctic Booklets (Ugly Duckling Presse). The first three works in her series Gyres was produced for the 2019 Whitney Biennial.
