Accommodating Suites: how can 2 places be 1 space, is based on an exploration of the hospitality of environments. It is a site responsive installation, where the work will be developed and shown in two sites- i) Lake Hawthorn and ii) the ADFA Palimpsest Gallery. The intention is to explore and build the relationship between these two sites and how humans interact with these environments. Historically the suggestion is that the constructed landscapes in paintings influence our perception of landscapes in real life[1]. Landscape has been an ideological juncture to support how humans and their experience of their environment might meet with the more abstracted propositions of art such as line, space and depth. Based on the principles of landscape, Accommodating Suites is an exploration of modes of realist representation, such as elevation and depth through recognisable tropes such as a horizon line, yet at the same time explores pattern and narrative through abstraction. The work explores human relationship not only to landscape, but also to the notion of the hospitality of environments and in turn hopes to question our individual hospitality towards them in return.
