Jorge Méndez Blake draws connections between literature and the visual arts through assemblage, drawing, and environmental interventions. “I think I tend toward the quotation, rather than toward the creation of new writing,” he says. “I prefer to be quoting others constantly.” He manipulates classic literature by drawing it into the gallery space, assembling pages and quotation into installations, or “canceling” texts by physically entombing them in large wooden boxes. Blake also forms textual chains with works that link the literature of travel and pilgrimage with photographs taken on his travels.
