A mini exhibition
‘Every landscape is a hermetic narrative: finding a fitting place for oneself in the world, is finding a place for oneself in a story’
– from Lucy Lippard, Lure of the local
‘Place’ is a collage piece made out of hundreds fragile ceramic tiles, each tile printed with a delicate photograph. The work shows us personal snapshots from a family album, empty landscapes where sometimes a figure emerges. ‘Place’ is about recollection, remembering places once visited and the fragility of those memories.
Tanja Engelberts combines a photographic and sculptural practice, the one informing the other. Understanding photography as being experienced solely through the eye, she uses sculptural installations to explore how photography can relate to the body, how movement and space can affect the viewing experience.
