Lunar Perspective

@ VOL 13 ON JUN 18, 2019

Eloise Maltby Maland initiates a discussion on our relationship to territory, belonging and otherness in her fascinating work. From the Lunar House to the Moon and back on Earth, she uses notions of space travel and satellite images to question the way we map, control and understand the space around us.

"Notions of space travel transport us away to look back and see the Earth from a new perspective. Looking up to the skies in order to return the gaze on ourselves, to understand and question the Earth, evoking ideas of territory and wonder."
