THE SERIES


THE SERIES


WORKS OF TRANSLATION is the premier solo show for contemporary Utah artist Megan Knobloch Geilman. Five years in the making, this series of photographic and digital compositions explores gospel doctrine, social issues, and historical narrative from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Using art historical reference and symbolic objects, the artist seeks to explore these narratives and communicate them for new audiences.

This show is about transmission, recontextualization, and symbolic meaning—in essence, they are works of translation. The process for each piece takes four to six months to accomplish from conceptualization to execution and often involves a small team to assist in making the artist’s vision a reality.  If you wish to support the arts and donate to the project, you can do so by clicking on the button below.

THE SHOW


"Translating scripture is a way of renewing life. In translation we lend our lives—our minds, our ears, our mouths—to the local resurrection of old texts, dead words, and lost voices. We put down our stories and take up theirs. And as we give voice to them, they, for a time, rejoin us in the land of the living."

—Adam S. Miller, Letters to a Young Mormon
