Janaina Tschäpe’s wide-ranging practice of painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, and video investigates observed and imagined views of the landscape, filtered through perception and memory. She often incorporates themes of aquatic, plant and human life to suggest dreamlike scenarios, referencing interests in myth, morphology and the mysteries of aquatic states. Her 2013 video, The Ocean Within, exemplifies Tschäpe’s fascination with the ocean and her characteristic interpretation of it as mysterious, dreamlike, and fantastical. She has explained: “Landscape is almost like measuring time; you look at something and try to find out where it ends. So the contemplation of a landscape is always a search, the search for something new, the search for time.” - @janaina_tschape_studio
