NEGOTIATING IDENTITY: WORD AND IMAGE INTERACTIONS IN JOHN PERIVOLARIS'S "LEFT LUGGAGE"

VIEWS: 3 PAGES: 6

Having travelled the world in the ownership of the photographer's grandfather, a sea captain in the Greek merchant navy, the suitcase bears traces of its previous journeys and handlers within its scuffed leather exterior and neatly monogrammed initials, "J.D.P." The luggage handed over by Perivolaris to his collaborators therefore carries a particular psychic weight, bringing to mind a strange lateral association with the mysterious briefcase in Pulp Fiction (1994, directed by Quentin Tarantino). [...] even the above definition of a "stone candle" is lifted from one of the entries for "30 November 2008," which also tells us that the photograph was taken on London's South Bank and that the contributor, Omar Garca Obregn, picked it up in Miami as a representation of the orisha Eleggu - a deity held within Afrocuban beliefs to personify fate, luck, and death, holding the keys of destiny and opening doors of happiness and unhappiness.
