Anatomy Series

Words

Artist Shannon Rankin creates installations, collages and sculptures that use the language of maps to explore the connections among geological and biological processes, patterns in nature, geometry and anatomy. These new geographies explore notions of place, perception and experience. About her ‘Anatomy Series’ Rankin says: ‘Maps depicting mountain ranges, roads, lakes and rivers resemble internal biological features, reproductive anatomy, skeletal structures and networks of the human body. Symbols of cities become acupuncture points, and meridian lines, like rivers, represent an internal system of communication and transport’.
