Residencies Studio Sessions: Shifting Topographies Artist Talk by Monica Ursina Jäger (Switzerland/United Kingdom), Artist-in-Residence
17 Mar 2018 - 17 Mar 2018  4.00–5.00pm
The importance of the spatial dimension of our lives and of the physical spaces we produce and experience cannot be underestimated. Space, place, landscape, and environment form essential realms of our daily lives as they shape, and are shaped by, political discourses; they are the grounds in which our past is layered and upon which our future is built. In presenting a selection of her artworks in dialogue with a range of iconographical and historical referents, Monica Ursina Jäger will explore the multifaceted nature of spatial experience and the rich history of its representation. Using Singapore as a unique case study, she will also address the “vertical shift” in the concept of landscape and discuss new forms of non-linear perception of time and space.

The talk will take place in the artist’s studio: #01-06, Block 38 Malan Road 

Part of Gillman Barracks’ Art Day Out!
