Aphrodite Désirée Navab: Landmines Of Memory

This video walk-through of Aphrodite Désirée Navab: Landmines of Memory (Winter 2021) offers an up-close view of this unique presentation of 58 ink drawings. Created while Navab was an Addison Edward E. Elson Artist-in-Residence, the series is inspired by her brother, Alexander Navab, who graduated from Phillips Academy in 1983, and who passed away unexpectedly in 2019. Mining her Iranian, Greek, and American heritage, Navab combines in this series the Labyrinth from Greek mythology and the patience stone from Persian folklore to explore stories of exile and migration, rupture and suture, loss and survival.
