With a beautiful simplicity, the artist plays with the narrative structure of story and leads her audience on a captivating textual and visual inquiry, loaded with strata and serendipity. She could be a knowledgeable bore, but instead she is spontaneous and open to the unexpected—an essayist who leaves a lot of room for invention, a precious common point between the researching academic and the creating artist. In a past that is both ridden with gaps and over‑documented, where its interpretation and its memory often appear locked up in the imperfections of language, Ellie Ga's work liberates the circulation of meaning.
