Joyce Kozloff: China is Near
Text by Barbara Pollack.
For almost 40 years, Joyce Kozloff (born 1942) has lived near New York's Chinatown and fantasized traveling the Silk Route. For this project, Kozloff pasted Chinese tissue paper cutouts into a sketchbook, then copied old maps of the Silk Road onto these pages--some in Chinese, some in English. She then painted into these cartographic collages using the bright colors of contemporary Chinese pop culture, and went to Google Maps to search for "China," which appeared all over the globe: China, New York; China, Indiana; China, Tanzania; China, Mexico, so she downloaded and collaged over these too. Finally she photographed the piles of stuff on Mott Street, Manhattan; Main Street, Flushing, Queens; 8th Street, Sunset Park, Brooklyn; Webster Street, Oakland and Grant Avenue, San Francisco, California--all destinations on the twenty-first century global Silk Route.
Featured untitled images are reproduced from Joyce Kozloff: China is Near.
FROM THE BOOK
"The book is called China is Near
, but it is really about the presence of things made in China which are everywhere. Every time you turn something upside down, it is made in China. The mind canít wrap itself around the amount of stuff produced there. The more cluttered and dense the pictures, the better they work for me. And thatís my aesthetic anyway. There is a chaos in the streets of Chinatown that I wanted to express, a feeling of overload."
Joyce Kozloff, excerpted from Joyce Kozloff: China is Near.
