Miriam Sagan & Isabel Winson-Sagan



From the Sagans' artist statement:

Poet Miriam Sagan and multi-media artist Isabel Winson-Sagan are a mother/daughter artistic collaborative team, working in text and suminagashi (marbled paper). Their long term project is "Maternal Mitochondria" which attempts to map their shared history but different perspectives. The section "What If" was created as a free write in which both women responded to the prompt. The overlap was uncanny, and the text was then broken up, paired, and re-arranged. It was then collaged on marbled paper. The effect is to have two voices echo each other and function as one piece.
