The Plantation Journal 3 Sculptural Landscape, launch at LO/A Paris, 15th November 6-9pm

´The issue explores the work by artists Jim Mangan, Adam Jeppesen, Luca Tombolini, Linn Pedersen, Mårten Lange, Kasia Klimpel and Inka Lindergård & Niclas Holmstrom. The essay is written by Marius Moldvær.

In the projects in The Plantation: Sculptural Landscape the force is not directed towards the medium of photography as such, but towards the physical landscape the artists are in. Through this action, the projects presented here become landscapes that disappear and reappear in different forms, they become continuing mediations of landscapes that are both familiar and unfamiliar to us. This action towards the landscape manifests itself through different techniques in the projects; through abstraction, juxtaposing the near and the distant, infusing tactility, and a “going-out" to landscapes that to them, as well as us, are unknown and sculpt—or manipulate—them into landscapes that are personal, cultural, aesthetic, and physical. What you hold in your hands are landscapes mediated through photography, an active sculpting from the raw material of their surroundings, these artists show us a landscape yet to come, a landscape that is private and subjective, cultural and objective, physical and ephemeral, all at once. - Marius Moldvær

The Plantation Journal is a series of printed publications that invites to a continuing conversation on current issues within contemporary sculptural photography. Printed in a limited amount of copies only, each issue is produced as an object for you to keep and collect. Edited by Trine Stephensen and Elevine Berge. Design by René Josdal.´

02 May - 29 June, 2014, 'Cut, Fold, Rewrite. At the Insterstice of Photography and Sculpture', group exhibition, Gallery FeldbuschWiesner, Berlin
Opening: 01 May 7pm


From the press release:

On the occasion of Gallery Weekend Berlin, the Gallery is delighted to present a group exhibition of seven international female artists working at the interstice of photography and sculpture.

In a modern world where digital photography and smartphones allow for instant publishing and continuous reproduction, a new generation of artists are making a conscious decision to adopt an artisanal approach, combining photography and sculpture in an object-oriented photography.

If we look back at the history of sculpture we can see photographic principles reflected in the sculptural process; here, the process is also visible vice versa. The artists exhibited in Cut Fold Rewrite find ways to create colours and objects in the camera, like Jessica Eaton, and construct spectacular landscapes and spaces for their photographs, like Kasia Klimpel and Marleen Sleeuwits. Laurie Kang folds and sculpts light-sensitive photographic paper into minimalist, sensuous sculptures; Christiane Feser's multi-dimensional geometric object photographs create a labyrinth of space and time.

The artists' studios become laboratories, where arranged still lifes and constructions act as static subjects that are experimented on in a controlled environment. This environment provides the conditions for the artists to search for new aesthetics and forms for photography. They do not design within the picture, as for example in the context of Bauhaus photography, but for the picture: with the paper, with the camera, in the camera – basically, with the entire spectrum of photographic material.

The subject and production process are not immediately obvious in their works, as the artists turn their backs on classical forms of representation and capture ephemeral moments and situations. The materialisation of processes is their primary interest. Pictures no longer make reference to a single subject and a fixed point in time, but create fictional places and times. The relationship between object and representation forms a point of departure for their work, from which the medium is put under scrutiny and the borders between photography and sculpture are constantly renegotiated.

Intro

Cutting, stacking, furling, folding fragile materials and arranging them in precarious and transitory states of equilibrium that the camera translates into sculptural phenomena or into simulacra of spaces or of architectural or natural structures on the one side; on the other, pictures, models, dummies, still-life-like constellations that have become installations, sculptural arrangements that have been translated into pictures: these are different approaches to the issue of photography as material and embodiment and its entanglement with the world of things, of reality that completely disregards the question of referents. What is at issue is not the connection between image and reality. The confrontation of material and image takes the form of collision rather than that of representation: a collision of materials, bodies, surfaces with the visual (or the gaze) rather than that of different types of visuality; a mutual translation, a deception, a sleight-of-hand, a series of revelations and concealments, of making one thing pass for another, of oscillations between picture and object, whose purpose is to put a distance between the act of making things visible and their visibility.

The exhibition project focuses on photography as an ongoing material practice rather than on the question of the production of meaning. The resurgence of interest in the analogue might be seen as a kind of desire for the image as object, for objects as images, a desire for images as raw sensual data, images that do not refer to anything but represent a kind of performance in and of themselves, a discrepancy between what can be said and what can be seen. This discrepancy may go so far that literally next to nothing remains visible in the images. However – and this is truly remarkable – this does not affect their ability to present a visual event, a space for articulation, in which an essential part of the visual is represented by a gap.
