[ISEA2012] Artist Talk: Matthew Hawthorn – THE PATHETIC LANDSCAPE

Artist Statement

Matt Hawthorn is a performance artist exploring the relationship between the performing body and the landscape through live and electronic mediations. This approach considers the mediated landscape as a deconstructed narrative of traces connecting people, events and violences. More recently this has taken the form of a video collection entitled The Pathetic Landscape comprised of a series of encounters between the artist’s pathetic body and a global network of contested landscapes.
