Topographies of Fragility VI
In Topographies of Fragility, Ingrid Weyland manipulates, alters and enacts “violent gestures” on the land, contorting images until the landscapes become something altogether different. Weyland’s photography taps into the age of Anthropocentrism – the role of the human hand physically and dramatically shaping ecosystems from the inside out. The collages, building on the parameters of “expanded photography”, include original images from Argentina, Greenland and Iceland. The final compositions explore layers of potential and possibility – the remnants of untouched landscapes still visible underneath the central crumple zones.
