SALON/Big Bang: Martin Butler & Floris Didden at the Oude Kerk

SALON/Big Bang: Martin Butler & Floris Didden at the Oude Kerk
In a Landscape (Digital print on Wood 2014) is a collaboration project between artist and stage director Martin Butler and digital painter Floris Didden. Inspired by early 19th centuary theatre design, Floris created a three dimensional digital painting allowing you to enter into a fairy realm. Using the classical stage principles of Trompe-l'œil, and forced perspective, the viewer is able to peer into and enter this represenation of a world between worlds. The piece was orginally commissioned for the mediamatic lightness exhibition " Fays, Fairies and Other Magical Creatures".

About: Floris Didden
is a digital painter and art director and is the founder of Karakter, the twice emmy award
winning gaming visual studio, best known for their visual design works for the television series Game of Thrones.

About: Martin Butler is a British born interdisciplinary artist and stage director. He was trained in Drama at
Manchester University, and then later Choreography and Performance at Amsterdam School of the Arts, in the Netherlands. His work always bridged and combined various disciplines, dance, theatre, music, film, performance, new media, and fashion, and through this interdisciplinary approach his work explores the new dramatic that the combination of different genres facilitate.
