Tenderpixel is pleased to present One'Act Play, Nina Torp's first solo-exhibition in the UK. Torp is a Norwegian artist known for her multi-media installations exploring cultural phenomena surrounding the cultivation of landscape. Editing history and examining the reproduction of place, she interprets the archetypal in art history, landscape and the other. For Tenderpixel, Torp investigates Iceland's history as a destination for sublime experiences by early travellers and expeditions.
One'Act Play features concepts developed by Nina Torp during her recent residency at SIM, Iceland (May 2010). Throughout the ages, natural phenomena have been used in set design and theatre. Similarly, tourists travel to divine destinations, places with pathways and vantage points reminiscent of these same scenographic structures. The moment tourists experience these places they simultaneously become a part of the site's history. Shifting spatial organisation between history and tourist, Torp asks: Who or what is the real spectator?
