> DESCRIPTION

Four artists have collaborated to present an interpretation of the urban landscape in a changed and global world. The artists have based their work for this exhibition on John Brinckerhoff’s theories that we have moved from a solid to a fluid phase of modernity in which nothing keeps its shape. A loading dock constructed with sugar cubes, a collaborate sculpture made by three of the artists, actualizes the idea behind the Brinckerhooff’s theory. 

Helmut Dick’s work examines man-made landscapes. At FiveMyles he presents three photographs of his Haute Cuisine Series. This series of exclusive meals is based on well-known press photos of destroyed buildings and landscapes, notably Hiroshima and Tschernobyl. The artists has re-built these scenes with food stuff on plates, ready to serve.

Karni Dorell's photo and video images of landscape focus on populated urban places - city streets, war zones, and mob gathering, small milling crowds and crowded areas.

Jennifer Protas's drawings and 3-dimensional flatworks combine multiple, overlapping horizon lines. Her landscapes contain industrial and architectural structures in ruins combined with vast, unoccupied places.

Roel van Timmeren’s video Golden, a three-part ballad taking place on a floating canal boat, is juxtaposed with three drawings of drowning trailers in a landscape of water.
