Footnotes to Triangular Cartographies – Processing Process
In her travel writings, Ana Hupe maps historical relationships while immersing herself in Yoruba philosophy. A detail observed along a boulevard of imperial palms in Cuba connects the gardens of the Portuguese court in colonial Brazil to an ancient currency in Nigeria. In this book, the notes become the body of the text, thereby relaying an intermittent incursion into the universe of invisible and poetic forces. Coincidences can also be recognised as synchronicities that increase speculative capacities. As an encounter between the visual arts and anthropology, art history, literature, and philosophy, Hupes project moves through these countries on its way to other destinations and destinies.
