Heterotopia is being explored by artists in paintings, collages, photographs, films and installations. I have written a brief introduction to some of these artists’ work – art essay cont pdf. Examples of art inspired by heterotopia include:
Knut’s wider work is explored in:
2. Fiona Ackerman’s paintings have explored the art studio and gardens through the lens of heterotopia.
3. Many of Vincent J Stoker’s photographs reinterpret heterotopia.
4. French artist Thierry Fournier explores heterotopia as a network of interfaces and surfaces, intimately coupling people and diverse forms of technology.
5. Lien Truong’s paintings include work that embraces heterotopias ‘as sites that mirror, distort, and invert other spaces‘.
6. Karine Laval’s artistic practice encompasses photography, video and installation/projection and a recent body of her work explores gardens and heterotopia.
7. As seen in his exhibition, The View of Heterotopos, You Jin’s work references many contemporary spatial ideas, including heterotopia.
8. Lost and Found – a collaborative installation by artists Patrick Holley, Chris Lillywhite and April Virgoe – explores Foucault’s heterotopia par excellence: the ship.
9. I would also pick out a book compiled by Shezad Dawood which was published on the occasion of an exhibition: Black Sun: Alchemy, Diaspora and Heterotopia. Dawood integrates the concept here and there, particularly in relation to a film by Maya Deren: Meshes of the Afternoon (1943).
