‘All the Islands of all the Oceans’, as a body of work was begun in 2001 and made continuously until 2006, including throughout a two-year Henry Moore fellowship at the University of the West of England (UWE) that was awarded in 2004.
Focusing on drawing and mapping landscapes, ‘All the Islands of all the Oceans’ records imaginary and existing islands. The initial sequence of drawings entitled ‘British Isles’ mapped every isle or rock separate from the main body of the landmass that is known as the British Isles. Developing this further, Kovats extended the concept to become ‘All of the Islands of all of the Oceans’ and documented the Islands in the Pacific Ocean using the Times Atlas as her source. She then further expanded this to include other oceans, with the aim of creating a floating atlas of her own making.
Drawings developed as part of this series were exhibited in two solo shows, ‘Slip’ at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2nd March - 12th May 2002) and ‘Offshore’, Newlyn Art Gallery (19th June - 17th July 2004) and in the group exhibitions ‘You’ll never Know - Drawing and Random Interference’, a Hayward Gallery Touring exhibiton (25th March 2006 - 25th February 2007) curated by Jeni Walwin and Henry Krokatsis with an accompanying publication (ISBN 1 85332 254 7) and ‘International Waters’, Steven Wolf Fine Arts, San Francisco, USA (4th May - 23rd June 2006).
