Hello! This is @sefullerphoto for this week’s @revolvcollective #instagramtakeover.
Today, I am posting about a series of works that involve my interaction with the landscape through the lens of photography and video performance.
The first work is a titled “Experiment in Landscape No.2” (2012). The video shows a view of Bow Lake as filmed through the ground glass of an 8”x10” large format camera. In the work, I appear on the left side of the frame, inelegantly walking through soft snow to the centre of the scene. Once there, I perform a headstand, briefly hovering in space before regaining my footing and exiting stage right. The performance lasts three minutes and blends the blurred, romantic view of the mountains in the background, with the sharply focussed intervention of my action in the foreground. The element of humour and awkwardness within my actions are intended to disrupt the established narrative of large format photography and the ‘untouched’ beauty of the North American West – a perspective dominated largely by male photographers.
