Falkenrot Prize 2007
Marianne Vierø works with photography and installation, which she employs partly as an inseparable entity, partly as strictly separate media. The objects that she photographs are usually unspectacular and everyday. It is only in the context in which they are presented – or from which they are taken – that a shift takes place in the viewer’s perspective, so visualising specific structures inherent to these things, making them ‘remarkable’, and assigning them a new status.
For “Arrangements of Beautiful Resemblance”, Vierø built a wall in the studio using red bricks; subsequently she photographed it, then tore it down and built it up again – in such a way that the mortar joints between the bricks created a different structure. The wall was photographed from various perspectives, torn down, rebuilt, and so on. Vierø has now arranged the twelve photographs resulting from the repetition of this process so that the large-format prints themselves create a kind of structure, and – as a result of the perspective shifts documented in the photographs – take on an almost sculptural character within the installation.
Marianne Vierø works skilfully to interlock two artistic media and different dimensions, so revealing exciting new perceptual approaches to the viewer.
