Die Werke der Künstlerin Yehudit Sasportas sind Landschaftsbilder und Sichtbarmachungen des Unterbewussten zugleich. In Zeichnungen, Skulpturen, Architektur, Klang und Film verdichtet sie die komplexen Strukturen virtueller und realer Natur – so von Waldlichtungen und Mooren – zu großformatigen mentalen Landschaften. Seit Jahren kehrt Yehudit Sasportas immer wieder zu Aufenthalten in das Restmoor Dreesberg südwestlich von Oldenburg zurück, um die eigentümliche und stille Landschaft des Naturschutzgebiets zu erleben. Yehudit Sasportas gehört zu den bedeutendsten israelischen Künstler*innen der Gegenwart und vertrat das Land 2007 auf der 52. Biennale von Venedig. Sie ist Professorin an der Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.

Sculptural process / Recording Time
The sound frequencies were manually drawn on top of the Silhouette prints. The Silhouette prints reflect and represent the indigestible subconscious life information that is conceptually stored in the 49 architectural spaces of the Liquid Desert site. The sound frequencies that were drawn, relate to the original sound recordings of specific trees from the Southern Black forest in Freiburg, Germany.
