Trails Rising
Artist: Anne de Vries
Year: 2011
Size: variable from 223 cm high up to 12 meters high
Material: Plastic, sand, metal

 

The sculpted totem poles ‘Trails Rising’ are made from a mixture of sand and an epoxy clay which has been marked by the tread of various sneakers. The imprints forged by ergonomic footwear, designed to augment the body, remain as traces forming future terrains. In their profusion the individual prints join and become a pattern across a mutable landscape – as if a multitude of solitary runners meet one another in a collective space, traversing the poles in a direct attempt at transcendence. One reference might be Brancusi’s monumental Infinite Column, built as a WW1 memorial for those who died defending the Romanian city of Targu-Jiu, was created as a means of symbolic ascension to heaven. Through these similar gestures we are presented with a different process based interpretation, opposing Brancussi’s essentialist notion of what enhanced realities could be.

Image Transfers – Apple, Avocado and Lemon
Artist: Anne de Vries
Year: 2012
Size: 160 x 70 cm
Material: Print on photo paper

 

These two digital prints present their own production tear down, starting as a still-life of supermarket fruit captured by a digital camera, the image travels through the lens, chip, wire, computer components, software, etc. all the way to the printer, until its materialisation as ink on paper that is hung with hooks and clips to the wall. The deceptive simplicity of this arrangement is overcoded by an informational panorama that renders visible the circumstances and locations of the chain of production in relation to which the fruit are the end-product eventuations. The inscriptions include the name and address of the retailer and the first responsible production companies involved and are superimposed in small type over the still-life image. Lining up the dynamic roots of this art piece production in today’s global economy.

‘Forecast’ is a computer-generated video in which the camera is panning through photographs of a blue sky with clouds photographed over Amsterdam.
There is a slow voice that takes us through specific segments of Bertrand Russell’s book “ABC of Relativity” in which Russell explicates differences between actuality and perception.
Addressing relativity theory and concepts of space-time. Halfway through the video, the reading of Bertrand Russell’s text turns into music, leading the viewer into a more associative experience.
