Katrin Sigurdardottir - High Plane - 2001-2005 - polystyrene, wood, steel. A site specific installation at The Renaissance Society, Chicago, USA.
.
A very large white platform is constructed 13 feet off the ground, on top of the trusswork above the exhibition space. It is perforated with two holes and ladders that lead up to them. To view the landscape, the viewers climb the ladders and then can poke their heads through the 2 holes in the platform. Simultaneously they are confronted with each other and their heads become a disproportionate part of the landscape. The scene does not document an exisiting place, all the mountains/ islands are made up.
