Richard T. Walker

an is that isn’t always. LOOP Fair, Barcelona

04.06.15 > 06.06.15
Opening: 04.06.15 19 h.

[ENG] àngels barcelona is pleased to present a new videowork by the British artist Richard T. Walker. Working within a meditation on the ideology of landscape and nature, the artist aims to interrogate the conception of such places, questioning what they mean to us and what the particularities of such an understanding reveals about who we are. Approaching the experience of these environments as metaphor, the artist seeks inconsistencies within our understanding as a critical tool to reveal points of confrontation between innate desire, cultural interpretation and reality.

an is that isn’t always plays with notions of spatial transition, emphasizing the physicality of distance in both real and emotional terms; highlighting the particularities of perception and the fragility of a linear-based understanding of reality. Walker wants to pose questions that address the point where the actuality and the preconceived understanding of an experience come together, mapping out an inquiry into the relationship that this may share with our sound and image-based understanding of reality.
