Organized Panel Session

Landscape in (E)motion: Memory, Body and Flow of Image in Contemporary East Asia

Friday, July 6
2:40 PM - 4:10 PM
Location: Kadamba, Lower Ground Floor

Not just being a physical space of the environment, a landscape is a structure conceived by historical intentions and perceived with the help of our pictorial memory and emotional impulses. Landscape, be it of a space or of a human body, can always be understood in real and metaphorical motion, which is driven by the lapse of time, the violence of human desire and power of representation per se. Using examples of art projects, films and urban artifacts, papers of this panel examine the idea of landscape as a continuously changing being in the context of East Asia, where the experience of colonialism, nationalism, diaspora are often interconnected and constantly generate a new landscape that takes place between motion and emotion. Efforts to capture or even create the reality of landscape become monuments to their own death and life, finding new forms in artistic expressions, cinematic sequences, and spatial memories. 

We consider our panel an innovative one since the presenters are of diversified backgrounds—we are scholars who are also active as filmmakers, art curators/programmers, artists, and photographers.
