Marie Lorenz’s 2007 installation, “Narrative/Memory/Navigation,” at Artpace San Antonio was a personal account of her journey in her kayak on the San Antonio River following the River Walk. She recorded her navigation of the river in various forms. Her kayak became part of the installation as well as drawings, wood carvings, and rubbings taken during her travels down the river. In the installation she makes references to other historical nautical journals that contextualizes and expands her passage. The physical installation at Artpace reconfigured these elements into an experience that is both a documentation of her journey as well as a different navigational event.
