Unfolding Landscape

Unfolding Landscape is a group show curated by Rachel Bacon in collaboration with Julienne Tullemans. It took place in De Cacaofabriek in Helmond, NL, from Jnauary 20 – March 4, 2018.

 

The show explored a variety of approaches to invisible landscape, offering a range of perspectives on how we experience and perceive our surroundings. The works suggest that what we see is not what is there; a landscape only visible in the dark; the thin surface activity that hints at deep geologic layers; landscapes constructed from extraterrestrial data; an interior emotional landscape or the personal mapping of an exterior surroundings.

 

Five artists participated in the exhibition (Luci Eldridge (UK), Catriona Leahy (IE), Andrew Youngson (UK), Wieteke Heldens (NL) and Rachel Bacon (US/NL).
