Leviathan

Leviathan is the collaborative name used by Michael Borkowsky and Sharon Mossbeck.

Together they collaborate on various projects, including Open Call Exhibitions. Only very occasionally to they collaborate on a piece of work, as both artists have different areas of interest.

The name is taken from their first collaborative piece of work together, Reviving Leviathan.

Reviving Leviathan

Reviving Leviathan is a collaborative piece of work between Michael Borkowsky and Sharon Mossbeck. The aim of the project is to search out the Biblical sea monster Leviathan by piecing together the fleeting glimpses of him in the Bible. With an exploration of cryptozoology, natural history and a bit of alchemy, can the mystery be solved?
