VENICE BIENNALE 2013/"The interplay between the local and the global in the project in the Maldives National Pavilion"

STATEMENT by Prof. Else Marie Bukdahl, University of Aalborg, Denmark and former Rector of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen

Excerpt 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."

  • SUMMER 2013 STATEMENT: ABOUT COMPLEXITY ART

    SPRING 2013 STATEMENT: ABOUT GUTAI

  • GUTAI postwar art movement...
  • "The first large, in deph examination of Japan's best-known postwar art movement is a mind-shifting event that brings together all the mediums it encompassed, brilliantly interwoven...the show reveals little-known precedents for Happenings, Minimalism and various strains of Post-Minimalism. It should permanently dislodge any notion of postwar modernism as a strictly Western phenomenon" Roberta Smith (New York Times) commenting on Guggenheim Museum's SPRING 2013 EXHIBITION 'GUTAI:SPLENDID PLAYGROUND'

    WINTER 2012-2013 STATEMENT:

    On the concept of ILLUMINATION

    "Illumination has been a subject and condition of art since prehistoric painters at the Lascaux caves positioned their images to catch the rays of the sun at winter solstice...In our own era, when art has no center or has centers everywhere, light as a medium has atomized into countless forms and meanings, from flourescent tubes and video screens to glittering magpie-eye scraps and painted rainbows." Holland Cotter
