Kendra Wallace: The Field of Appearances

88 -

In this essay, Anja Bock discusses the recent exhibition of photographs by Montréal/Limousin (France) artist Kendra Wallace, titled The Field of Appearances (Trianon Gallery, Lethbridge, Alberta, November 7, 2015 – January 24, 2016). Bock argues that Wallace’s large-scale colour extractions of flowers offer a way to understand “landscape” as a dynamic exchange between “subject” and “object.” By interfering in the operation of the camera, by concentrating on colour rather than image, and by emphasizing full sensory perception and materiality, Wallace breaks with the conventions of the landscape genre and challenges the underlying philosophy of ego-centric vision.
