Presentation <Walkthrough Installations> #9
Address：Dimensions Art Center（DAC）
Maurice Bogaert Born in 1975 in Amsterdam Graduated from Academie of Fine Arts (Maastricht, The Netherlands), M.A., Piet Zwart Institute of postgraduate studies (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) 2001.
For a couple of years now Bogaert has been developing a series of works that engage, each in different ways, with what he calls filmic architecture. In these works, he explored the relationships between scale models, sets, architecture, and the moving image. Starting point is was the question: would it be possible to do a remake of a film, let’s say Ridley Scotts Alien, with a set that would allow one to do so in one single shot? How to translate the combination of spaces, montage and shifts in size and angle as we see them in the film into the actual spatiality of a set that would allow one to shoot the film in a single continuity without the cut and paste of montage? This brought him to the idea of the Morphed Set as both a potential plan for a work and an intellectual exercise or figure of thought. Sometimes his works are extremely large “walkthrough installations” – at other times, they are infinite small scale models and prototypes.
