FLIGHT PATHS - Mette Bersang (DK) and Katherine Marquis (UK)
28 JANUARY- 4 FEBRUARY 2012
We are proud to present new work by Mette Bersang and Katherine Marquis. They have ben working together on a project that was born out of volcanic ash; or rather this disruption to the European airspace in 2010.
'The landscape of the sky was empty of vapour trails and the absence of any noise or shark-like objects turning over
London and Copenhagen was poignant. We noticed when the plane was absent. And since then we have been rigorously exploring the shape of planes and space that they occupy.'
Planes can be silent in the sky only traces by their vapour trail up high. Flight paths provide the map above us.
Exploring the notion of mapping the plane. Physically as its body shape and digitally in the data of its route as well as the abstract idea of the plane and the space between the surface of earth and its place in the sky. The objective view of looking down on a plane in the sky is fascinating, as it is a view we rarely see, but we prefer the view from earth of the undercarriage of a plane.
Mette Bersang and Katherine Marquis work with photography, drawing and various print making techniques to expolore ideas around how flight paths connect us.
