Unforeseen Jean Marie Casbarian, Susan Jahoda, Jenny PerlinMarch 28 - April 15, 2007
Photographs, drawings, paintings, sculpture, and film by well known and emerging British, American, and Canadian artists including Darren Almond, Tacita Dean, Janice Kerbel, Melanie Carvahlo, and others.
This exhibition aims to juxtapose and foreground how these artists re-think the genres of landscape through photography, film, sculpture, painting and drawing. While the artists might be seen to be interested in dreamy or fantastical landscapes, their work also suggests that for them, traditional ways of depicting landscapes have become impossible. The desire to represent the natural world remains, but new modes of representation become urgent.
Guest curated by Mark Godfrey (Lecturer, Slade School of Art, London) and Jodie Jacobson (curator, Horticultural Society, New York). An exhibition catalogue will be produced.
