Isabelle Wenzel- Building Images

‘I have never worked in an office and found it fascinating to see how functional and minimal the movements of people are in such a space. It made me wonder how long I could keep on sitting still’

Wenzel contorts her body like a circus acrobat into humorous positions which are not without a strange tension. Her contorted static positions translate the absurdity of office behaviours and movements. Sitting still for a minimum of 8 hours, surrounded by the same colleagues, everyday, for the majority of your life, Wenzel explores the office environment unsure whether she would be able to sit still for that amount of time.

Music blogged to- Beach House ‘Devotion’ (2009)

I thought I would share a small edit from one of my own projects.

Sophia Wise- A Childless Woman

Throughout this project I return to key locations within a rural folk tale as an attempt to trace the life of a young girl who committed suicide after the shame of falling pregnant out of wedlock was brought upon her. Mirroring her steps through oral folklore. In doing so I use my local knowledge of the area and the landscape surrounding me to create images which propose a juxtaposition between a beautiful landscape and scenes which allude to death and loss.
