Jan Dibbets. Horizons

Two photographs, one a green dune landscape touching the horizon, followed by a seascape, which likewise touches the horizon, are repeatedly juxtaposed in a way that divides the horizon. One might call this event a serial shift or displacement, as both have the same horizon line, but the external form of the photograph is continually changing. Rhombuses, squares, etc. are derived from the two juxtaposed rectangles; they are tilted, reflected, etc., engendering a confusing poetry that one can never quite fathom, as Rudi Fuchs eloquently highlights in his instructive analysis.
