Antennae: The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture

WHITE GRADIENT 1

TOM DENLINGER’S MORE-THAN-HUMAN PHOTOGRAPHY

The following conversation with photographer Tom Denlinger considers those issues that most clearly underscore the emergence in his work of a more-than-human landscape, a landscape that Tom captures as material urban nature, as powerful and agentic mesh or grid.  more>>

This issue of Antennae is the second installment of 'Exposing Animals' co-curated with Matthew Brower (Assistant Professor and Director of Museum Studies at the University of Toronto), and Cecilia Novero (Senior Lecturer in the Department of Languages and Culture at the University of Otago). The pieces gathered here map photography's ability to construct different notions of animality by questioning its idiomatic productive potentialities and limitations. More than the previous, this issue is concerned with the fluidity of digitality, the construction of human-animal metaphorical and physical dwellings, as well as the mourning of multiple, historical, and everyday animal losses.

Tom Denlinger interviewed by Cecilia Novero

This interview focuses on Sara Angelucci’s photographic series Aviary (2013). Aviary marks the emergence of an engagement with

environmentalism and species loss in the  artist's work. The interview explores the origins of the series and the links it suggests between birds and photography. Thus, the artist’s engagement with 19th Century photographic practice provides a backdrop for discussing the histories of collecting, photographic albums, spirit photography, taxidermy and the bourgeois parlour that the work touches upon.  more>>

Sara Angelucci interviewed by Matthew Brower

Photographs of animals have circulated since the early history of the medium, initially focusing on those that were tame, captive, or dead. Advancements in camera and film tech- nologies enabled precise recordings of beasts in motion and, eventually, in their natural habitats. During the summer of 2015, In Focus: Animalia, a photographic exhibition curated by Arpad Kovacs, held at the J. Paul Getty Museum in LA, examined the expanding tradition of animal representation through the works of artists such as Horatio Ross, Alfred Stieglitz, William Wegman, Pieter Hugo, and Taryn Simon, among others.  more >>

In the photographic series, Domestic Intimacies, I explore the lived experience of cohabitating with a group of companion animals. The resulting photographs examine issues relating to domesticity, tending and care taking, the changing needs of aging pet animals, my own aging body and domestic hygiene.  more>>

25FT is an installation of video and still photographs appropriated from Israeli army surveillance cameras monitoring activity along the separation wall with Palestine. The work simulates the position of the soldier controlling the camera, focusing only on animals and the landscape in the occupied West Bank. The appearance of these animals throws the border, its function, and what it stands for into question for both the soldier who survey it, and the viewer in front of the work.  more>>

TO NEVER KNOW YOU: ARCHIVAL PHOTOS OF RUSSI AND FRANZ MARC

by Jean Marie Carey

This essay examines photographs of the German Expressionist artist, writer, and Tierliebhaber Franz Marc and his dog, Russi, taking the position that one of the most obvious characteristics of Marc’s life – his affectionate and respectful relationship with Russi – has been largely overlooked, though its documentation is clear.  more>>

Akira Lippit wrote that animals and photographs produce similar liminal and phantasmatic effects going on to assert that animals were, in many ways, ‘fleshy photographs’. In the 1960s, the ‘street’ photographer Garry Winogrand, who, along with Robert Frank and Lee Friedlander, came to define a particular style of American documentary photo-graphy, took a series of images in the zoos of New York city. Some of those were published in the 1969 book The Animals.  more>>

My work is concerned with our relation- ship with the natural world and the objects used in my photo collages are heavily symbolic of life and death. I also draw influence from Carl Gustav Jung, the renowned psychiatrist, and psychothera-pist. The motif of the Mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism that represents the universe. .  more>>
