Oksbøl Heath, A View to the West, 2013.

The Landscape In-Between is the title of a cluster of landscape projects interpreting the forgotten and anonymous landscapes of Danish military shooting grounds. The Landscape In-Between depicts the paradoxical nature of these landscapes, namely the constant reminder of the balance between the innocence of the picturesque Danish Golden Age and the brutality of warfare. In this space, the heather blooms in the deep caterpillar tracks of Leopard tanks. Here, the soldier’s boot prints mix with animal tracks from badger, otter and red deer. Here, the cannon shells share the air with the sea eagle and the woodlark. It is this duality the project illustrates through photography and video installation. The project commenced in 2009, and it includes The Forest, Songs for the Lark and the Cannon, The Stag, The Tank and the Lark, and (W)Under Works.
