Kerkstraat 45, 2060 Antwerpen, België

In her PhD research, Karen Vermeren looks for new artistic representations of the geological landscape. She constructs two-dimensional in situ installations that challenge traditional notions of landscape painting. The research is executed in collaboration with the University of Antwerp (Prof. Ivan Nijs of the research group 'Plant and Vegetation Ecology' and Prof. em. Louis Beyens, of the 'Ecosystem Management' Research group) and the research group Horizontal Drawing at St. Lucas University College of Art and Design Antwerp.

Her first project "Cocos Ridge" (2012-13) is named after a fault line in Nicaragua where two tectonic plates, the Pacific and the Caribbean Plate, collide. About 40 volcano's are part of the 'Ring of Fire', and create the contours parallel to the western coast of Nicaragua. Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions constantly change the surface of the earth. In the installation "Cocos Ridge" this geological landscape is transposed to the exhibition space.
