Loss Revision, Johansson Projects, Oakland, CA

2011 | Solo Exhibition |

In Loss Revision, Eric Petitti presents a series of works excerpted from his project “The Dreadnaught Saga”. The project is designed to emphasize the ways in which depictions of history can distort the past in order to influence the present. On close inspection, the details within the work offer different perspectives either embracing the larger story or contradicting the truth that they claim to espouse. This exhibit presents the competing theories put forth to explain the disappearance of the legendary defense ship the Golden Pear in 2535 CE, whose loss led to the First Polar War between the Antarctic Collective and the Neothian Union.
