Christina Battle: Uncharted Histories: Pirates

by David Balzer

EYE WEEKLY, Apr. 3, 2008, p. 50

A review of Christina Battle's new show which centres around cultural significance of pirates. Her work Uncharted Histories: Pirates attempts to disarm the popular myths surrounding pirates which continues to capture the imagination of contemporary culture. However, Balzer argues that despite the achievement of the installation pieces themselves, which are aesthetically intriguing, the work fails to achieve its theoretical intentions.
