The exhibition is curated by Trine Stephensen / Plantation Journal.
Sculptural Landscapes presents the work of a range of Scandinavian artists with a common interest in the sculptural and abstract qualities of photography. In their work, each of the featured artists approaches the landscape as a phenomenon, encompassing both manmade and natural forms as well as internal and external landscapes.
In an exhibition where the landscape is both a universal fact and a personal affair, the spectrum of visual approaches is equally as varied. Here, images created directly with the camera sit alongside those that are distorted, sampled, twisted and faded beyond it. The featured artists refuse to be confined to the photographic frame, challenging instead the surface of the image and expanding into spatial installations.
Founded by Trine Stephensen, The Plantation Studio is an art initiative and project space showcasing explorations within contemporary curatorial and photographic fields. They curate various exhibitions, publications and events.
