Measuring Spatial Amnesia

Measuring Spatial Amnesia #12

Exhibited at  VÆG - Contemporary Art Galleri.   

No recollection is without consequence, and we may act on our memories. Why we feel compelled, seduced or persuaded to act on this memory rather than some other almost always remains mysterious.” Victor Burgin, The Remembered Film

Measuring Spatial Amnesia is a photographic recreation and a discovery of an abstract childhood landscape, serving as an antidote to fragmented autobiographical memory. The landscapes are pictorial documentation from a mental journey. The color palette is derived from the color atlas of body fluids, mixing dark red hemoglobin with green biliverdin, orange bilirubin, yellow urobilin, and brown stercobilin, giving the landscape its colors. It is a project that connects fragmented memories with a more corporeal memory.

The works are digital collages and manipulations of appropriated images. In the work process, there is a breakdown of the landscape elements and a manipulation and distortion of the landscape's perspective and dimensions. All works are created using the same blank template with identical pixel dimensions. The horizon is centered, and each image can seamlessly connect with the next, creating an unbroken horizon and timeline. The works are topographical illusions with a flexible and changeable narrative.

The exhibition comprises 16 landscape works. 
It is generously supported by The Danish Arts Foundation and L. F. Foght's Foundation.
