A landscape is far more than just a view. It is charged with history, with politics and ideas that cut deep into our consciousness.
Mariele Neudecker’s work keeps returning to the landscape tradition in art, but through this she deals with questions around technology and science, collective experience and time. Neudecker is interested in our perception of the world and how we hold on, re-create and memorize our experiences. Through the use of a broad range of media including sculpture, installation, film and photography, she examines what defines the line between nature and landscape, and reflects on how any definition of the contemporary sublime is continuously changing.
