Pleinair is a two-person collaborative exhibition by Klara Sofie Ludvigsen and Erik Friis Reitan, in which both artist presents new bodies of work that test the relationship between optical and bodily experiences of photographic works. What has arisen from their collaboration on this exhibition is two complementary strands that pursue the tension between optical and physical experience in the presence of a photographic artwork, and between the essential formal qualities of a medium in transition and the subjective intervention that leads an artist to favour one image or form over another.
Working with advanced analogue processing techniques, Ludvigsen’s new photographic works foreground the effects of scale, pictorial disorientation and the signature marks of analogue development on the viewers experience of an increasingly rarefied photographic manifestation. Friis Reitan, on the other hand, uses digital processing to probe the relationship between what can be seen in a particular location and the transformation of this material in the context of an installation.
In Friis Reitan’s and Ludvigsen’s practices medium-specific reflection interfaces with world of content outside of the camera and the processing environments of photography, whether analogue or digital. Both find their source material in landscape or pleinair photography, but look for a new formal and political language with which to treat this material. Moving away from the notion of the photograph as a disembodied artefact of a mechanical process of seeing, both explore the relationship between photography and embodiment.
