Borders of Nothingness - On the Mend

@ Lansink, Margaret



Presentation on the artist's website:   

" « In the infinite flow of everything, people come and go in our lives. While the presence of some can be so subtle that we hardly register when it begins or ends, with others it's far clearer: they enter, or leave, with a bang.

In her delicate and powerful series of black and white images, Dutch photographer Margaret Lansink dwells in the emotional state of transition between knowing and not knowing another person. In reaction to her daughter's decision to suspend contact with her, Lansink uses the camera to feel out the sense of severing a connection. She photographs landscapes and nude women, often rendered mysterious or unreadable, seemingly asking: is this the moment you were gone?

Borders of Nothingness raises heavy questions regarding the presence and absence of others in our lives, engaging with our sense of loss as well as the everyday miracle of making the acquaintance of another. »

Lansink, Margaret

Margaret Lansink is a Dutch photographer. Visual investigation of the relationship between humans and  their (physical) environment is the main focus of Lansinks work, she often feels like a spectator of a play; looking from the outside in to what happens. In her work, Lansink explores relationships, trying to bridge the personal and the universal. The way she photographs is purely intuitive; her images present an open and honest reflection of her own inner emotions at a certain time, space and interaction. Her series "Borders of Nothingness - On the Mend", about a separation from and her reunion with her daughter was presented in the "Off" of the Rencontres d'Arles festival in 2017, and published with the same title by the(M) éditions in 2020. In 2020 as well, she publishes "Body Maps" with Origini Edizioni. Margaret Lansink had previously self-published three photobooks, including "Fear no More" in 2017 and "The Kindness of One" (in collaboration with Kaunas Gallery, Lithuania) in 2019. © Portrait & biographic elements taken from the artist's website
