Lynne Roberts-Goodwin’s body of diptych works, ‘the north parallel 5 & 6’ from BEYOND THIS POINT series 2022, (each 67 x 100 cm), engages with navigational satellite and ground research, photographic still imagery & topographical terrain shifts along the northern hemisphere 37 degrees North latitude parallel.
This series reflects on spatial ambiguity, navigational complexity, and the vertical notion of aerial terrain. The artist, known for her large-scale remote undertakings of projects within extreme and isolated locations traversed and tracked from satellite, hot air balloon through to ground level, focuses on familiar yet unfamiliar events and tracts of land that have been radically reshaped over time by human, mechanical, atmospheric activities or environmental shifts. Uniquely, within this latest series, something beautiful and yet disquieting unfolds when the artist trains the camera on these unfamiliar yet disquieting familiar tracts of land. These black and white photographic diptych’s in positive and negative of satellite imagery, tracks from satellite, the 37° North latitude, which paradoxically covers this project's line of balloon flights from 14 locations which pioneering Italian aeronaut Vincenzo Lunardi b.1754 traveled from and failed–a tribute of ambitious failure to navigate and disorientation beyond this point.
The artist within BEYOND THIS POINT series takes on the role of navigator and confronts the vertical and volumetric geographies within a highly interrupted and uneven mobile world.
“There comes a point, as one ascends into the sky from the earth’s surface – and the largely upright human experience of living on it – when the conventions that surround the human experience of the vertical dimension must inevitably break down.”
‘Vertical: The City from Satellites to Bunkers”,Stephen Graham, Verso p.25
