Knowing very well what is at stake in representation, both in photographic media, global image circulation, and art world practices, the artists in “Here and Elsewhere” share a critical attitude toward images, a healthy skepticism toward simplified representations, and a commitment to questioning the role that images play in the fabrication of historical narratives.

Riddle Me This: Real or Not Real?

I was challenged (over a week and half ago!) by arollercoasterthatonlygoesup in the Everlark Drabble Challenge, with the prompt, Mythological!Everlark.

I wrote a drabble, but didn’t really like it, so I scrapped it. Then I remembered I always wanted to draw Katniss as a sphinx, and Peeta as a wanderer who had to answer her riddles to reach the end of his journey.

Her relation to feline characters in the books (the lynx, Buttercup, Tigris), her role as the Mockingjay, and the enigmatic puzzle she presents to Peeta as he wonders exactly what she is in Mockingjay, made the sphinx feel like a very appropriate mythological creature for Katniss to embody.

I left out the serpent tail because that didn’t fit the way the wings and feline body did. I gave her jaguar haunches instead of a lion’s because I always liked Khnopff’s sphinxes best. And Peeta is not Oedipus here.

Lastly, I’m not going to challenge anyone because this is so late, I’m not sure if the challenge is still making its rounds! If someone wants to be challenged, let me know!
