UNIARTS HELSINKY

Our world bubbles, the earth is a bubble. Yet, there is the aesthetic and life-preserving potential of the bubble: it is an equally rich metaphor for isolation and ignorance as it is for nurturance, safety and protection, and even more so for perfection and effervescence. 
The Landscape, Art and Photography | Contemporary Artworks in the Landscape
DOX – Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague

01.11.2016 - 12.01.2017


Curated by Dagmar Šubrtová and Radoslava Schmelzová

This exhibition features photos of works of art based on the land art movement (art for public space and ecology), which is why we won’t find them in galleries, but have to go see them in their natural setting. Their creators defined the duration of their physical existence by placing them in a specific place, in a natural setting or a rural landscape. They are freely accessible and exposed to climactic effects.
In most cases, this art attempts to engage in some sort of dialogue with the site, its history, or its natural characteristics. At issue is not only the geological type of landscape, which defines what grows and lives within it, but sometimes also less evident spiritual qualities. The photographs feature some long-term projects, and attention is also devoted to those that strive to become part of the landscape over the long term, while other works now exist only on photographs.

The photos were selected from a book by R. Schmelzová, D. Šubrtová, and R. Mikuláš entitled Současná umělecká díla v krajině [Contemporary Works of Art in the Landscape] published by Academia in 2014.
