Site Specific Art

The Passage, by German Artist Cornelia Konrads

"…responding to nature by presenting a way for the viewer, or more commonly, visitor, to reexamine their relationship to place through site-specific installations. Gateways feature heavily within Konrads’ work - Passage, installed in a forest clearing in Germany, provides a literal pathway back into nature. Returning cut-down branches to the cleared area, Konrads provides a direct, graceful and yet playful link between our own interventions into nature and the beauty of the nearby untouched wilderness. Crafted from branches mounted upon an iron frame and suspended with steel rope, the installation forms a roughly organized door frame before drifting upwards and outwards, almost camouflaged by the surrounding woodlands.”

"… Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes."
