Architecture Makes Us: Cinematic Visions of Sonia Leber and David Chesworth

‘Architecture Makes Us’ includes six major video works by this collaborative duo exploring how we are affected by the geographical, technological and the architectural influences that surround us through structures both tangible and intangible; such as craggy geographies, territorialisation, surveillance, exhausted systems and future philosophies.

Leber and Chesworth’s new 8-channel video installation, Geography Becomes Territory Becomes (2018) explores an 18th-century Finnish island fortress, highlighting the tension between built and natural environments – walls appear as screens, windows as frames and rigid enclosures emerge from rocky landscapes.
