With one eye on the horizon (2011)
We are pleased to announce that the first graduation show of the Master Media Design & Communication: Lens-Based programme will take place this summer in TENT Rotterdam.
The nine Masters students present the graduation work that represents their two year research programme exploring the possibility of creating new works that synthesise cinematic and photographic forms.
The collaboration with TENT is an integral part of this research, together developing ways to present the work in forms that still engage with broad cinematic and photographic traditions, and yet address the particular relation with the viewer that a gallery can offer.
Within the diverse work on show, a certain engagement with landscape can be identified: landscapes with specific histories and landscapes abstracted into images of the sublime, recorded landscapes, and utterly synthetic landscapes. But all viewed through the eye of a lens either physical or virtual. It is from this tendency that the title of the show is derived…
Since 1999 TENT has been drawing attention to and presenting significant developments and image-defining artists in the visual arts in Rotterdam. The 1000 m2 exhibition space is located in a characteristic former school building in the cultural Witte de Withstraat. In lively solo and group exhibitions, TENT presents the many-sided manifestations of contemporary art in Rotterdam.
The Lens-Based programme of the Piet Zwart Institute started in September 2009. The programme focuses on approaching animation, digital photography, and moving-image design as a single expanded field. It is a two-year, full-time, international, English-language study programme.
