Emily in the Sugar Factory, 2003,
from Paradise in Disguise: A Diary of Images
Since 2000 Diana Blok has visited Brazil several times. On her last visit in 2003 she was invited by the Sacatar Foundation, together with colleagues from Africa, America and Europe as artist-in-residence, to stay for two months on the island of Itaparica in the Baia da todos os Santos to the south of Salvador. The Brazilian travels of Diana Blok also have a strong personal character. It appears that she is restlessly in search of the paradise of her youth.
