Sophie-Therese Trenka-Dalton: PALMS
Artist Catalogue, Textem Verlag 2016


PALMS is the artist´s first comprehensive publication and summarizes installations, sculptures and photographic work made between 2005 to 2015.
In her work Sophie-Therese Trenka-Dalton examines examples of cultural appropriation generated by the process of imperial powers continuously imploding and shifting. Places as Mesopotamia, Los Angeles and Dubai form the starting points of her installations, where she retraces and extends the migration of cultural artifacts, reconstructs architectural references and presents collected research material.
With PALMS the artist expands her installation-based practice into the book format, connecting her intertwining projects of the last years into one continuous narration.
