Undiscovered Landscapes is an exhibition of five international filmmakers exploring the landscape of the family, self, home and place. The exhibition runs over a two month period with each artist presenting their work within the space separately.
From 1 – 7 December Inger Lise Hansen will be presenting her film triptych; Travelling Fields, 2009, Parallax, 2009, and Proximity, 2006, at The Wapping Project, London.
The main focus of the films is on impermanence, transience, and ideas of change, shifts and ‘repositioning’. Landscape and architecture that appear to be solid and permanent is experienced unstable and disorienting. Travelling Fields was shot in the Murmansk region, Kola Peninsula, Russia and Parallax in Linz, Austria.
Proximity is part of the Animate Collection. An upside-down time-lapse camera is moved, frame by frame, on a track along a beach, inverting the ground and the sky. The camera moves through four shots recorded in different weather conditions. The result is a mysterious and disorienting space in accelerated time, where the originally solid ground at the top of the frame appears to be sliding past like a lava stream. Proximity was shot on Super 16mm film, on location in North Jutland, Denmark.
Proximity can be watched here along with Animate Project’s 2006 interview with Inger Lise Hansen. Proximity is also on the AnimateTV: 20 Years of Experimental Animation from the UK, DVD which can be purchased here.
On 9 Dcember there will be a talk and book signing from Inger Lise Hansen, tickets are £5 (deductable from the price of the book or DVD) and places can be reserved by contacting email@example.com.
Entry to the exhibition is free and the gallery will be open for First Thursdays, 1 Dec from 7-9.30pm.
