A walking Visual Diagnosis of Reclaimed Landscapes
Time & Location

About the event
Hu Yue (胡悦) will introduce an ongoing project using walking as both a research method and a working process. She uses a practice-based artistic research that employs diagnostic methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) – “Watching, Listening, Asking, and Feeling”- to represent artificially manufactured landscapes. By applying multi-sensory perspectives of “seeing”, a new terminology – Humanscape – is created and represented through photographic language and with her “earth writing” experiences inspired by geopoetics studies.
Through intervening in humanly regulated environments, the artworks focus on the boundary and dynamic balance between Humanscape and the sea with photography, electron scanning, moving images, cyanotype prints, and sounds. The exploration is rooted in Hu’s intimate and intuitive walks in Tianjin in China.
Hu Yue (胡悦) is a visual art practitioner, curator, and translator who currently conducts practice-based PhD research at the University of Plymouth, UK. She is interested in the dynamic counterbalance between humans and nature as well as its consequences under environmental and climate change contexts. After completing an MA in Documentary Photography at the University of Westminster, she has worked at art museums and carried out independent projects. Her works are mainly shown in China and the UK.
