Menacing Beauty 2014-15

In October 2015 I had the honour to be one of the 6 artists in residency (AIR) for NOA, in the Gulbenkian Gallery of the Royal College of Art, London, the first of a series of touring exhibitions around the country.

 

My proposal was an in-situ work, intimate and ephemeral that invited the public to get in and explore. I also wanted to respond to my own research of landscape representation.

 

 

Using remnants from my large format charcoal drawings I created an immersive paper landscape. This installation used the apparent simplicity and whiteness of paper. It was also a complex structure: made of giant leaves cut-outs, folded and crumbled that create a volume that can be penetrated. Once inside this landscape, the visitor could explore and discover another one: a miniature landscape. The co-existence of two landscape representations at different scales aims to encourage different sensory approaches towards landscape.
