No Man's Land, 2019

Lawrence James Bailey collects material from his surroundings, which he photographs and combines to make new representations in his studio. In the type of ‘landscape’ that he uses as a source, a kind of human presence is tangible: ‘The border area where the city and the surrounding landscape meet. A kind of no man’s land where hardly anybody goes and where criminal activities take place.’ In a world where people control most of the existing nature, he sees these terrains as the new wilderness. ‘You won’t be eaten up by a wolf, but it can be dangerous there just the same and end up in confrontations.’
