The Urban Landscapes
She continues to focus on liminal space, the [different kind of] emerging world of our habitat, as reasserting the political and contested character of social space. Landscapes become my new face of social space. Urban environments are rife with these isolated places, not necessarily limited to the interiors, but extensions of them: rooftops, peripheral highways and waterways, side streets, etc. Via the latest landscape images, she now refines a different mode of interpretation of this urban isolationism, which can be argued is at the root of both economic and social poverty. It is also a place for escape, hope and emptiness simultaneously, in these urban peripheries. Shot at twilight, where the timing and solitude — coupled with auspicious light — emphasizes these issues she addresses. There is no artifice of the interior collapsing with the exterior, but the landscape serves as an extension of the interior, perhaps more indicative of urbanity that those spaces more cosmetically constructed.
