Landscape Too brings together artists and writers from Alice Springs, Sydney, Toowoomba and Townsville to consider the idea of landscape, as it pertains to an experience of being in Australia. Following on from the exhibition Out of Site held at Articulate Project Space in 2013, the artists in Landscape Too live and work in different parts of Australia, enriching this discussion through many different approaches and experiences. The exhibition will also be accompanied by a compilation of texts exploring these ideas.
The idea of landscape is one that calls forth both doubt and wonder, particularly working in the unsettled intercultural ground of Australia. It prompts the question; what is it we are responding to when we consider landscape?
The works in this show come from experiences of a landscape that we continue to shape and move in, and the desire to understand the place we inhabit both physically and imaginatively. The artists hence, articulate a negotiation with the necessity and impossibility of the idea of landscape. What ensues is a conversation between the works and the artists, an engagement with different embodied experiences and imaginings of what landscape means in Australia today.
