Stick, paper, platform. The hand, body and gaze touch on their surroundings. Often aimlessly, occasionally purposefully. They can end anywhere, for example in images which, in the art of Lotte Fløe Christensen, unfold between classical landscape photography and a curious, exploratory and sometimes even sculptural practice. The images are both works in their own right and a documentation of the artist’s activities in the landscape – a form of absent-minded wandering interrupted by the kind of fragile constructions and signs we create alone in the woods. They are therefore related, yet very different, in expressive form. The images operate on different scales, from the micro scale of inconspicuous stick structures, to them monumental macro scale of landscapes. And between them: the body looking at and acting in the world, because there is a constant and highly physical doing at play here. Somebody (a woman) does something somewhere: looks, crawls, struggles with a sheet of flapping paper, constructs precarious platforms, unstable scaffolding for… for what? Is it a game?
