Sherrard, Cherene. “‘Perfection with a hole in the middle’: Archipelagic Assemblage in Tiphanie Yanique’s Land of Love and Drowning.” Journal for Transnational American Studies 10, no. 1 (Summer 2019): 93-123.
I read Tiphanie Yanique’s Land of Love in Drowning alongside Wangechi Mutu’s exhibit and St. Croix-based artist La Vaughn Belle’s video installations/counternarratives of Danish slavery to further illuminate the archipelagic nature of Yanique’s narrative assemblage, which demands a interartistic perspective that considers multiple mediums and modes of exchange and encounter across national and natural boundaries.
