Expanse – Students’ Biennale•4th Edition

Expanse

Expanse moves through landscapes to look at the land. Works, romancing with landscape move on to the question of ownership, boundaries, ecology and industrialisation. Visual registers, referring to historical conventions of landscape painting, just do not attempt at an exploration of designs, but also essentially look into the possibilities of reconciliations between nature and culture. The sequence of the works aims at addressing romantic, lyrical, poignant and even sceptic and critical approaches to reflect on the diversity with which landscape is dealt with. Representational designs and materials with a history of usages lead ways to an abstract cartographic representation of expanses of land. Industrial materials like cement, plaster and wire simulate both the texture and feeling of land.
