Biography
Quintan Ana Wikswo (@QuintanWikswo) has long been active at the intersection of art and social justice. Her conceptually based interdisciplinary work integrates fiction, poetry, memoir, and essay with her original photographs, performance, and video. A former human-rights worker, she uses salvaged government typewriters and cameras to navigate known, unknown, obscured, and occluded worlds where crimes against humanity have taken place and whose complex histories involve the intersection of gender, disability, queerness, and race, with a special focus on human-rights aftermath issues. Inhabiting the intersections of sexuality / gender, warfare / power, and mythology / shamanism, she creates sites for investigation of existential questions about humanity, our societies, and how we can navigate beyond the boundaries that contain us. Her several books include the acclaimed collection of photographs and stories The Hope Of Floating Has Carried Us This Far (Coffee House Press). She has presented multiple live performance works and solo museum shows in New York City, the Berlin Jewish Museum, and elsewhere. Her work has appeared several times in Conjunctions’ online magazine.

Punishment is a poor substitute for justice. When, after all, does punishment end? And what is punishment meant to do?

You still eat roots the way each footstep
put together this hillside
as if it was once a pond and slowly

dried for the afternoon–a simple life
