WORKS OF TRANSLATION


COMPOSITIONS BY MEGAN KNOBLOCH GEILMAN

 

"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

THE SERIES


THE SERIES


Works of Translation is a series of photographic compositions by contemporary Mormon artist Megan Knobloch Geilman. The series combines inspiration from various art historical and Mormon archives, including ancient and modern scripture, gospel doctrine, social issues, and historical narrative. The process for each piece takes months to conceptualize and execute. The final goal is to create twelve distinct pieces, eventually to be hung in a show.

We invite you to view the series page and gallery to see the collection and explanations on each piece. Feel free to check back as new pieces are added. If you wish to support the arts and donate to the project, you can do so by clicking on the button below. We appreciate any support, this is a deeply exciting and personal project for me and I look forward to seeing it through to completion. Thank you for checking us out and hope you enjoy the collection.
