This poetic and conceptual work by the Finnish-Lithuanian artist and poet, Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, is a romantic installation that recalls a fictional event that took place in the year, 1514, when the poet was sent by the Holy Roman Emperor, Maximilian I (1459-1519), on an epic journey to chart and record the newly discovered territories of Central and South America. That journey is penned in a short story authored by the poet, A Tragic Chronicle of Fortune and Destiny, which ends with the burning of the Emperor's Imperial fleet off a South Caribbean island along the Yucatan Coast.
