地平线
Perspective is a cultural property. The history of paintings of landscapes shows us a history of perception. The relativity of perception becomes most apparent when we look at ‘the other’. And so ‘the east’ (east of what ?) can serve as an excellent point of reflection for ‘the west’ (west of what ?) and the other way around. The installations Shan-Shui and HORIZONS (https://vimeo.com/36303071) form a complementary outlook on the perception of the landscape from the west and the east.
