CONTRIBUTORS

My work is of narrative nature, it opens up a space from which the recipient can think ahead. The works contain one or more questions that you can talk about. Mostly, my questions research the relationships between reality and possible reality, between sign and matter. You can say: I am suggesting a narrative. And as well: I am creating a situation. Some situations do not seem to be possible at all and some fictions seem to be more attractive than the real history.Some fiction I created is drawing dystopian stories of the future. The series is examining the way we are constructing future and especially failed futures. That’s what I am doing, and I call it art.
Rudiger Fischer multidisciplinary visual artist, lives and works in Lubek, Germany  http://www.ruediger-fischer.com
I am interested in the social dynamics arising from contemporary culture - particularly how personal identity is affected by environment and how our social and affective lives interconnect. This interest in the psychology of place has been a catalyst for both autobiographical and voyeuristic projects, documentary approaches to more conceptual ones. Much of my photographic and video work highlights the domestic environment, although projects sometimes refer more broadly to place and sites in transition. My recent series share an underlying narrative about human interaction or presence. My work has been reviewed as 'sensually and psychologically intriguing' , possessing 'moments and places of tension.
Mandy Williams  photographer, lives and works in London, United Kingdom  http://www.mandywilliams.com
My art practice refers to stories of reversion, representation and displacement. I understand my art work as multidimensional collages of opening spaces of intercultural contentions. It intends to evoke in the eye of the beholder individual, collective, socio-political and religious representations.
I like to shift, to shuffle and to superpose places and meanings to make perceptible, observeable and apparent.
The strategy of alienation, displacement and transformation is a search for making social conflict zones visible, to provide an insight to the public to think and perceive space and time on a different way.
Juerg Luedi  performance and mixed media artist, lives and works in Berne, Switzerland  http://www.poolart.ch
The camera is the tool I use in the urban landscape to merge reality with utopia and triviality with complexity. My work revolves around the observation of what lies on the periphery – things and objects that frame our everyday life yet exhibit a spirit or a character of their own. Buildings that seem to stare back at me, brutal residential blocks that radiate their cold anonymity, or martial temples of Nazi origin cast in rock. I make copies of my prints, change their proportions, detach details and elements from their original cityscape surroundings. I then cut, fold and rearrange the prints, into three‐dimensional volumes.
Urte Beyer  multidisciplinary visual artist, lives and works in Berlin, Germany  http://www.urte-beyer.de/
Conceptually I am consistently drawn for all my projects to the themes of mystery, beauty, transfiguration, culture, and surrealism. I am not certain why but I am also consistently drawn to certain types of images. Sometimes my images are infused with sociopolitical commentary, other times not. Always I strive for beauty in my work, and originality. Both are important to me, no matter if the image is photographic, color or black and white, or from my mind, as in a drawing.   Links to two interviews about my work are available for viewing by clicking the Interviews link at the top of the screen.
Larry Cwik  fine art and experimental photographer, lives and works in Portland, Oregon, USA  http://www.larrycwik.com
My work explores the image in an experimental way using a variety of media, from audio-visual projects to site-specific environmental interventions. Current investigations revolve around what is an image and how different forms of perception shape its meaning.I tend to work by limiting myself to a few essential materials, each piece being the product of an elaborate generative process. The subsequent works are hybrids between my conceptual framework and nature. I attempt to strike a balance between human intervention and nature, creating works that hover at the threshold between my conceptual premise.
Barbara Bartos  visual and kinetic artist, lives and works in London, United Kingdom  http://barbarabartos.com
In the beginning of my process, I get ideas from experience and lately from things I see in thelandscape that inspire me.
I usually make a series of word lists and sketches, very rough thumbnailsreally. Then I move on to making images that follow the sketches.
The only body of work that relies totally on what happens in the moment is Water. For that series, I am in the water and the work is spontaneous and dependent on the light and nature.
Any work using props and models, such as with objectify and Her Stories, is much more time intensive.
Jana C. Perez photographer and video artist, lives and works in London, United Kingdom  http://www.janacperez.com

NEW SPECIAL ISSUE

German artist Frank Ackerman once stated that "The question for me how can I make time somehow collapse or expand, so it no longer unfolds in this one narrow form". In this new special issue of LandEscape, we had the chance to interview 9 artists whose interdisciplinary practices focus on the experience of time and serve as representations of movement through space. In this issue:
  • Miya Ando (USA)
  • Kees Ouweens (The Netherlands)
  • Lisa Birke (Canada)
  • Rosalyn Song (United Kingdom)
  • Christian Gastaldi (France)
  • Noah Klersfeld (USA)
  • Alexandre Dang (France)
  • Xiaohong Zhang (USA)
  • Sergey Sobolev (Russia)
Through their eyes, we see the world as a kaleidoscope of everchanging meanings. Things we thought we knew, whose significance we took for granted, suddenly change and turn out to be the opposite of what we believed them to be.The complete issue is freely available also on our issuu.com platform as well as on joomag.
EVENT  Transient Matters: Arranging Re-arranging  (part of Open House 2016)

Transient Matters is the first in a series of interventions in the courtyard at Bow Arts, a flexible event space that forms part of a development designed by Delvendahl Martin Architects at 183 Bow Road. The project, completed in 2014, consolidates the chartiy’s activites at the heart of its Bow Road studio complex.

March 23rd, 2015  Harry Burke interviews Kari Altman

Kari Altman is an American artist, art director, performer, and musician focused on the tropes of today's survival fantasy aesthetics, identity mutation, and "sharing culture" an American artist, art director, performer, and musician focused on the tropes of today's survival fantasy aesthetics, identity mutation, and "sharing culture"
As she underlines " You could make other people's art, you could predict what everyone was going to post next, faster than they could post it. Your ideas and personalities became brands instantly. You started viewing everything in situ with similar and related content around it, which in art always included other work that was copying it or at least was uncomfortably similar. It also included products, artifacts, architecture, and selfies. The timeline from thought to post diminished. All content sources became equalized. Resources were scarce. Memes dominated. It's a story for another time." Read the >>>complete article>>>

March 26th, 2016  Cyberformance in the Third Space: A Conversation with Helen Varley Jamieson
(interview by Randall Packer)

Randall Packer has interviewed Helen Varley Jamieson, an interesting digital media artist, playwright and performer from New Zealand.
She underlines "that there are different kinds of relationship between audience and performers, at least in performances using platforms such as UpStage, where the audience have the possibility to chat with each other and with the artists.  The response from the audience to the performance is in some ways more direct – they can comment in the chat and will often be very honest in their comments; and in other ways more distant – a standing ovation has to be typed into the chat, which is less of a loud emotional outpouring."

September 16th, 2014  Charles Eppley interviews the artist Sergei Tcherepnin

Charles Eppley has interviewed artist Sergei Tcherepnin who participated in a lecture series organized by the Center for Experimental Lectures at Recess. The evening was dedicated to investigating sound as an artistic material, both material and psychological, and also featured philosopher Christoph Cox.
Tcherepnin underlines that he "started to realize that there was not much conversation on sound, which in reality is very subjective... but normally it is talked about much more objectively. For example, even though a lot of the early 1960s pieces might have subjective tactics or strategies, like liberating the spectator to experience sound differently by walking around the space, there was still always an acceptance of sound as a pure, absolute material.>>>complete interview>>>

March 12, 2015  Global Audiences, Zero Visitors: How to measure the success of museums’ online publishing
(posted on Rhizome by Orit Gat)

An interesting article that can be read on Rhizome "As museums are rethinking their relationship to their audience online, an increasing number chooses to publish online magazines, and many of these publications emerge from institutions that are not necessarily the major museums in art world hubs.  while others produce magazines that are thematically related to subjects the museum covers but are not directly linked to the art on view. What they all share is a feeling that online publishing expands the museum's audience, making it a potentially global one."  >>> read it >>>

EVENT  Comrades of Time by Andrea Geyer at the Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari: Refrains of Freedom International Conference

The Non Profit Art Company “Out of the Box Intermedia” presents “Comrades of Time” by Andrea Geyer curated by Dr Sozita Goudouna within the context of the “Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari: Refrains of Freedom International Conference” on Friday 24th of April at 17.30-19.30pm at the French Institute of Athens and on Saturday 7.30-11.00pm at the Museum of History of the University of Athens, (Old University, or Oikia Kleanthous) Comrades of Time attempts to find new ways to capture time in the image by engaging with the question of time and with the provocation of Gilles Deleuze’s term the “Time-Image.” The artist is researching on the new significance of time and on the temporalization of the image as a political, historical and cultural construct by working with seven women who recite monologues composed from speeches, letters and essays from 1916-1941, written by architects, writers, philosophers and political organizers >>>read the complete article>>>
