MEG HITCHCOCK: THE LAND OF BLISS

MEG HITCHCOCK: THE LAND OF BLISS

This work by Hitchcock uses carefully cut sections of religious texts (such as the Koran, Torah, or Bible) and re-orders the words to create new meanings for these culturally weighted treaties on morality and belief systems. The artist recreates the text of religious books using the physical words from another religion.
Here she has recreated a Buddhist text by cutting words out of the Bible and organizing them in a structure resembling a mandala.
