DOMINION tackles topography and heterotopic spaces. It presents the artist’s return to landscape where she neither treats nature as a spectacle nor confines it into a picaresque framework. Instead, she intervenes into the symmetries of volcanic landforms, the expanse of starry skies and the stretch of the sea to record certain ways of seeing. As much it is an exercise of looking, the exhibition presents the dichotomous relationship of an artist to the landscape when she chooses to frame such an ambiguous, omnipresent subject matter. It presents to us the question of who or what is conquered, artist or nature?
