In her latest tank installation, Breathing Yellow, commissioned specially as part of Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway for Dulwich Picture Gallery, Neudecker takes inspiration from the dense birch trees of Norway’s forests to create a three-dimensional living landscape submerged underwater.

About

From expeditions to the furthest reaches of Greenland, to being 2017 Guest Artist at nuclear research centre CERN, Mariele Neudecker’s work often explores the cross-section between the sublime natural world and human interference, much as in Sohlberg’s landscapes.

In her latest tank installation, Breathing Yellow, commissioned specially as part of Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway for Dulwich Picture Gallery, Neudecker takes inspiration from the dense birch trees of Norway’s forests to create a three-dimensional living landscape submerged underwater. Inspired by the rich colour Sohlberg used in his paintings and the intense yellow light of the Mausoleum – part of Sir John Soane’s original stained glass design – this fragment of a world will continue to change and evolve at different times of the day, responding to the light conditions surrounding it.

Neudecker describes her tanks as an immersive experience:

“You are both simultaneously drawn in close inside the tank, and clearly outside it; you inhabit the space in your mind and are physically distanced by artifice, glass, refraction and reflection.”
