LANDSCAPES

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LANDSCAPES is a large-scale (8x8 meters) public artwork that consists of seven video monoliths that stand in a large circle resembling a modern Stonehenge. Spectators stand in the centre of the installation as the seven monoliths come to life with a collection of unfolding moving video images accompanied by a surround sound atmospheric experience.


Silhouettes of hills and mountains span around the viewer as a vast landscape moves across each screen. Enormous rumbling sounds fill the space like tectonic plates that are moving the earth. The moving landscapes are in fact not landscapes at all but are the silhouettes of seven senior citizens bodies. Limbs, torsos and legs camouflage themselves as desserts, mountains and hills as microscopic details of skin, blemishes, wrinkles, and hairs come to life. Eventually from the bodily landscapes seven stunning portraits of seven diverse senior identities appear. Like untimely ancestral beings they take their space and stare at the viewer with warmth.


LANDSCAPES postulates between aging bodies, diverse identities and the world we reside within. The installation features seven different LGBTQIA+ senior citizens recruited from around Europe and celebrates their bodies and portrait’s in the form of a public artwork. The work shines light on senior queer identities whom are often overlooked, dismissed or forgotten. LANDSCAPES is a public artwork that speaks of universal themes such as: aging, body positivity and togetherness.
