In this series of prints and print-objects, Deep Time, I have been further motivated to explore these constructed landscapes as a way of understanding that which stands still, yet still changes, often imperceptibly- restaging combinations of transfer prints and photo-etchings, as sculptural framed pieces, to create impossible relationships between distance and nearness- what is in reach, tactile, mobile- and that which is unfathomable, beyond our reach and longed for through the screen. The outside has come inside, at a time when the outside, and far away can only be interiorized and imagined- these screens beyond the screen, narrate a new articulation of space in the gallery.
My work is concerned with auratic translations, interpretation and fiction in our encounters with the landscape. I use photographic installations, projections and print editions to explore notions of the politics of place, resistance and ruin. I am interested in the spaces between what we know and what we think we know about the world, and have investigated these ideas in a series of installations and prints over the last few years.View all of victoriaahrens's posts.
