Descrizione Opera / Biografia

Transforming Landscapes I, Photo / Installation, Kakslauttanen, Finland, 2022.
Short description:
”Transforming Landscape I” is part of a series of photographic Interventions we did during a one-month artist residency in October 2022 in Kakslauttanen, Finland.
By moving tree trunks and the resulting minimal irritations in the landscape, that can only be seen by ”one special perspective (just one p.o.v)” we want to point out global interventions of humans in a natural cycle, which takes place for its own economic and profit-oriented motives.
We want to question whether a human manipulated forest can still be an attractive, functioning habitat and whether we are able to deal with the resulting consequences.
who we are:
Heidundgriess // Alexandra Grieß, Jorel Heid
Since 2011 we work as an artist duo, based in Hamburg, Germany,
Due to our different professional backgrounds, we combine the fields of art, architecture, and design.
In our artistic interdisciplinary practice, we have been working and researching on the topic of rapidly growing cities and their consequences for so-called “nature”. We deal with questions such as:
-What different understandings and interpretations does the term “Nature” unite, each of which is individual, culturally shaped or conceived as a market-based idea?
-What are the consequences when we shape, transform and conquer our environment according to our needs or economic interests?
We take up site-specific themes and develop interactive, multimedia installations and interventions in public spaces as well as in galleries.
