DAUGHTER OF THE SUN: The Latvia Project
DAUGHTER OF THE SUN: The Lativa Project is a piece exploring personal mythology and national identity. In writing her own origin story, our protagonist, the Traveler, weighs mythology against history in a battle for what is her own truth. After learning that all sides of her family resided in Latvia before immigrating to the United States, with no records surviving of their time there, she finds that the whole notion of “identity” takes on a mythology all its own, one requiring a strong element of detective work.
DAUGHTER OF THE SUN was developed through the Dorit and Gerald Paul Artist-in-Residence at Indiana University and the curated series at Dixon Place.
