Details

Inger Lise Hansen is a visual artist with background in experimental film and animation who for the last two decades has produced a distinctive and acclaimed body of moving image work. This publication presents her recent film trilogy, Proximity (2006), Parallax (2009) and Travelling Fields (2009); a series of spatial deconstructions using disorientating perspective and animation to foreground landscape and architectural elements across a series of diverse locations, from a shopping centre in Linz to the deserted landscapes of north-western Russia. 'Hansen's films are fundamentally simulations; feigning naturalness, continuity and movement (...): In them, the sky becomes sea, a low point, a base. They quite literally portray a world on the brink, a realm of condensed time and strained space.' - Stefan Grisseman. This DVD contains: PROXIMITY, 2006, 4 min An upside-down time-lapse camera is moved one centimetre at the time on a track, inverting the ground and the sky. The camera travels through four shots recorded in different weather conditions, on a deserted beach at Skagen, Denmark's northernmost point. PARALLAX, 2009, 5 min Inger Lise Hansen made the site-specific work Parallax during an artist residency in Linz, Austria, for the exhibition Hohenrausch at the OK Center for Contemporary Art. The film is shot entirely on the roof of a shopping center in Linz. TRAVELLING FIELDS, 2009, 9 min Travelling Fields is filmed on a number of locations in Murmansk and Monchegorsk in Northwest Russia. The film observes various topogra-phies and architectural elements in the landscape. It is shot in places such as abandonned construction sites, a field by a factory and an empty car market.
