About

Lorem Ipsum Gallery is pleased to present Where did you go, an exhibition on the themes of Nature and Landscape featuring video artist Sofia Dahlgren, sculptor Thomas Harrison and photographer Emma Wieslander.

These three artists have been brought together for their shared interest in the historical and psychological aspects of the perception and assimilation of Landscape. Their contemplation of the landscape, distanced through the intervention of different media like the lens or the cast accepts the environment as man-made rather than natural. Inspired by Victorian ideas about Nature within both Science and Art, each artist highlights their particular experience of Nature within the context of 19th century anthropocentrism; all three emphasise the importance, as artists, of their journeys into - and their presence within - the countryside. The results are idealized visions of landscape that celebrate and yet ultimately mourn the artist-scientist as lone explorer.
