I go walking in your landscape
(Maastricht / Boschstraat 48)
In her photo work Kim Boske (1978, The Netherlands) investigates the elapsing of time. With great care Boske constructs her images with various layers, by piling transitions, changes and shifts onto each other. As such she aims to capture the complex possibilities of the ‘now’. The outcome is an image that simultaneously shows various recordings of moments in time but is at once a balanced whole.
In I go walking in your landscape Boske is driven by her interest in the process-like nature of things. ‘Becoming’ is so much more interesting that ‘being’. Nature and the landscape, in a continuous state of change, are perfect instances for this motif. In this photo series Boske has captures various city parks in Amsterdam. Taking inspiration from Jean-Paul Sartre she takes a distance from the individual perspective and brings together several perspectives into one image, thus creating a new and layered reality. It generates a new kind of iconic landscape art.
