Seeing Versus Taking Before
Jeanne Knoebel, Lee Ledray, Tsuyoshi Kelly & Imi Shiota
The work does result from an awareness of the kinds of activity: collecting, analysing and sharing data. The unique design of these works takes them beyond the realm of a cultural craft into sculpture and mixed media, beyond any simplistic categorization. There is something quite important about this central focus to the images. Is a segment between two points; every building has things that people like to point out, quirks of history that come to define it. There is maybe a sense of other times in this work, within the present tense transmitted to the screen, Jeanne Knoebel investigates the interplay of time and space, the now and the before, and the way we can relate to their perceptions. The art of Jeanne Knoebel emphasises an awareness of buildings and living space. That contrast between areas in and out of focus, exaggerates the sharpness in the central area, it takes more than just visual or acoustic reception to understand the works, for they are synaesthetic, appealing simultaneously to the visual, acoustic and physical perceptions of the viewer and captivating in their precision; that contrast between areas in and out of focus, exaggerates the sharpness in the central area.
