Fiery installation ablaze in the Swiss Alps by Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember
Some interesting work by Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember – thanks to eMorphes for posting!
Monumental land artwork by Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember. ‘As close as you can for as long as it lasts’ uses fire, smoke and sound — a call and response between two artists — as a reference to the well-known history of yodeling in this particular area.
The large-scale, site-specific sculpture has been created in response to the landscape of Gstaad. Upon visiting the beautiful but terrifying mountain site, Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember found beauty, fear, loneliness and a particular sense of melancholy. With these emotions in mind, the artists explored the idea of a lonely traveler who might seek companionship with another person in such a place, questioning whether this relationship is based on desire, fear or excitement of the unknown.
The fiery land art is on view as a part of Elevation 1049 through March 19, 2017.
