From the essay "Reisemalheurs": "In the context of Vivienne Koorland's work, the work 'Reisemalheurs' has a particular resonance. Not only does it invoke the peripatetic nature of her own life-story - a representative tale which has its origins in Eastern Europe, its formative years in South Africa, student experiences in Berlin and Paris, an extended adulthood in New York as well as deep familial ties to London - it serves to distill the sense of unease attendant on displacement and dislocation that so much of her work thematises: iconically, textually and materially."
