Ros Boisier’s artistic project in which she explores the photographic representation of the mountain and its symbolic drifts. Boisier revisits the archetypes of the mountain landscape and its unquestionable visual heritage in the collective imaginary of these natural environments in order to reflect on the different ways of interpreting the cultural perception of the territory as landscape. (Work in progress)
In ‘Lo elevado profundo’, Ros Boisier links the visual imaginary of mountains with the mountain ranges, sierras and mountains related to her biography in Chile and Spain and to that of her European ancestors who emigrated to America from France and Italy at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. He also investigates the image as an instrument that models and constructs the landscape.
Between the topical and the unusual, between the documentary model and the ambiguous and polysemic nature of photography, ‘The High Deep’ is configured through fragmentation, repetition, multiplication and superimposition of images in sequences and visual grids.
The narrative and conceptual articulation of the project is structured in five chapters that address the relationship between the mountain, its imaginary and photography (as a technical image) based on micro-investigations that investigate, through conceptual and symbolic interrelationships between devices, ascension, fragmentariness, stillness, silence, mystery, copying, error, journey and testimony.
