OLLIE DOOK: OF LANDSCAPE IMMERSION
28 July - 30 September 2018

 

In 2018, Ollie Dook created his first outdoor work as part of Jupiter Artland's programme to support emerging artists in the production of outdoor work. Focusing on the Jupiter Artland landscape, the animals and the parameters that house them, the artist created a new work depicting the contained boundaries that form our visitor experience.
 
Reflecting on parallels shared in zoo enclosures, fabricated microclimates and imagery drawn from the BBC series Planet Earth, Dook fabricated a sculptural enclosure that both mirrored our experience of observing natures forces whilst also positioning us – the audience – as a spectacle to be observed.
