Lotte Milene Bosman - Visual art & Research

Lotte Milene Bosman (1987) studied at Minerva Academy and the Frank Mohr Institute (Painting, 2012). Her artistic practice is characterised by an investigative attitude and with every project she thoroughly indulges herself in her subject. Common materials are transformed or applied in different ways than usual to generate fresh perspectives and to allow one to be newly amazed by the material itself.

Throughout her career as a visual artist, Lotte Bosman has been working in a wide range of media, from painting and drawing to installations with living plants and conversation pieces. Thematiacally however, the focus

always revolves around cultural geography and the understanding or experience of nature from a human perspective. Landscape, climate change and biodiversity are related to this. From november 2016 to 2021, Lotte Bosman was part of the artist collective Satellietgroep (the Hague, 2006) where she focussed on the same theme in the role of co-curator, writer and maker.

“The general public appears to have an idealistic idea of what nature is and what the world should look like, and slowly our environment is adjusted to fit that image, becoming a representation of nature. If  we continue in this direction, going out to the North Sea might become like going out to the zoo or to an aquarium. But we are also nature and since the beginning of humankind, the planet has been cultivated, making nature part of  our cultures, and slowly turning the world into an artifact.” 

 

From the essay Who is nature? How visual narratives in art and design can overturn prevailing understandings of environment.
