Polemics of the Landscape

Polemics of the Landscape

Polemics of a Landscape is a new, ongoing body of work by Jordan Tate exploring the experience of viewing land and making landscape photographs. It is a marked departure from the work for which he is best known, a conceptual digital photography practice. In early 2018, Tate embarked on a series of written correspondence with art historian Abigail Susik in which they create a framework for how to talk about this work, investigating philosophy and art criticism alongside of their everyday experiences of travel, teaching, and familial obligations. A publication of their letters and Tate’s photographs will be part of the exhibition. The publication is titled Picturesque Snot, an alternate title for the series which explores a typo of “snow” Tate made early in their exchanges. Susik writes, “It’s like as soon as you captured the photographic image, the coolness of the place, its difference of land, was suddenly transmuted into gooey snot as ‘picturesque’ enframed picture-landscape.”
