Irene Kopelman - The Exact Opposite Of Distance Notes On Representation Vol. 5
Amsterdam-based artist Irene Kopelman’s work explores the relationship between science and art, sifting through the problem of the inherent tensions between sameness and difference. ‘The Exact Opposite of Distance’ is both a journal and an art book documenting her experience while making drawings of patterns of light in the Amazon rainforest. Having a habit of always translating what she observes into compositional fragments, Kopelman was challenged by the complexity and chaos of the dense jungle. As told in her fascinating and candid daily accounts, the confrontation between task and setting forced her to constantly negotiate her criteria in the creative process.
