Lake Baikal II

 
Sarah Turner graduated from St. Martins School of Art in 1989 with a degree in fine art; film, video and photography, and completed her Masters at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London. Turner has curated a series of programs of experimental film from around the world for the National Film Theatre, the Tate Gallery and the Arts Council of England.

Lake Baikal II is part of a five piece study of the Siberian Lake. Turner uses the medium of video painting to build upon her past explorations of relationships between internal and external realities, focusing on how this relationship is embodied in the natural landscape. Mist coils on the water’s surface as the world’s deepest lake collides with the air above it. This boundary between the astoundingly deep interior of the lake and the exterior landscape may be a clear one scientifically yet Turner’s work presents it as anything but. An entirely honest method of representation is used to present natural scenery in an engrossingly alien way.
