We plow your meadows with the slender plow.
Danish artist Andreas Rasmussen (1984) works in the interdisciplinary field between spatial and narrative situations when in dialogue with a specific site, location or architecture. By using a place or a space as a starting point, the work of Rasmussen scrutinises and questions his surrounding environment.
His work linked to spatial situations manifests itself in various studies of laboratory, landscape, digitally generated or imaginary space, trying to understand how these space are perceived and used by the collective or by the individual subject. For example the work ‘Vi pløjer dine enge med kølens ranke plov’ (´We plow your meadows with the slender plow´) challenges the story of our relationship to a brutal cultivation of nature or the culturally constructed nature. At the same time it questions the aesthetics of landscape throughout art history.
Rasmussen’s interests are focused on how the different stages of a physical transformation change a process and thus generate new visual and linguistic languages.
