so matta-clark's work is a forceful pulling back into the city; into politics of development, speculation and the destruction it produces as a necessary moment within.
the land art rests for the moment as i'm working on the final set of printmaking pieces. a series of four. which i decided to be about lived in and visited spaces. rooms i lived in or visited. some old, some new, some fleeting some persistent. the prints are to be a combination of all things i learned in the course so far. so: probably culmination is a better word rather than combination.
two of the images will be new ones; two will be translations into print medium of existing images.
the home/house/interior relates to some of the sound art i recently come across, heard, saw, pondered. it concerns the spaces that are demarcated by subjective responses to the places we inhabit. the boundaries these spaces establish: of access, of use.
there is a lot more to be said and done about this. most of this is taking place off-screen and i have been coming to use the blog here more as an uncommented but carefully assembled holding space. i seem to be working in messy clusters these days.
- there is the one about about interior spaces, subjectivity as well as disappearence;
- there is another one that is developing out of my previous work on fields, landscapism, a thorough look at landscapenature;
- and there's a third that is starting to ask questions: questions about knowledge production in art. the methodologies of artistic production and how these can be explored.
the last point opens up to the how? can i work on these issues in art/research? can i play with these in art/research? can i learn about these? can i learn about these with others?
i think these will serve well as starting questions for the next few years. there will be some visuals too. but first, take this one little intervention
