Stig Marlon Weston: Empirical

3. June 2021 @ 10:00 - 13. June 2021 @ 20:00

Copenhagen Photo Festival 2021 presents one of its solo exhibitions as part of the FRAMING VISION focal points: Empirical by the artist Stig Marlon Weston.

Empirical is a photographic exploration of the Amazon rainforest landscape, investigating how the scientific method of looking at climate change can be depicted as a way in which to see and sense the natural environment.

Working with scientists and local activist groups, Stig Marlon Weston has travelled through both rainforest nature reserves and industrially developed areas to document and collect visual samples of how human activity has inflicted changes upon the natural landscape.

With cameraless photography he makes «lumen prints» by exposing light sensitive analog photographic paper to sunlight. The paper reacts to the light and a shadow imprint is formed as a direct photograph of the subject placed on the paper. The paper also reacts to temperature, humidity, physical touch and chemical interaction. 

Explore more about this series and his photography technique in the tent, join the printing activities, and follow the paths of artworks nestled in and around the treeline.

Search and find – Norwegian Stig Marlon Weston’s exhibition is based on an expedition in the Amazon rainforest, so a tent and hammocks will be placed on the setting. The artworks are spread out in the Bedding’s landscape, so that they will blend in with nature. This Demands your full attention to catch every glimpse of it. Blink, and you might miss it.

Stig Marlon Weston’s exhibition is supported by Statens Kunstfond. 

The festival centre and CPF has generously been supported by Københavns Kommune, Det Obelske Familiefond og Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond.
