STATEMENT by Prof. Else Marie Bukdahl, University of Aalborg, Denmark and former Rector of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in CopenhagenExcerpt from review/article on Soren Dahlgaard contribution at Venice Biennale 2013:
"Visual arts have always been interested in interpreting and visualizing nature's many changing manifestations and the complicated, organic growth processes that have created them.
However, it was not until the 1960s that Environmental and Ecological Art began to appear. Robert Smithson (1938-73) and Robert Morris (1931-) established Land Art, which consisted of monumental interventions in or reconstructions of the natural surroundings. A number of other artists, for example Michael Singer (1945-) and Alan Sonfist (1946-), were occupied forming the landscape from the standpoint of nature itself, with a new ecological awareness. Joseph Beuys (1921-86) also created works from an ecological perspective, which he called social structures.
These artists have together with their colleagues created the premises for what later was called sustainable art or green art. They have shown how art, architecture and design can innovatively address environmental, social, political and economic concerns, as well as provide solutions that promote regenerative outcomes.
After these artists had embraced ecological problems and taken them into the world of art, increasing numbers of artists have followed their lead – for example, Rosalie Gascoigne, Maria Michails, Erwin Timmers and Nohra Corredor."
