Image in the Landscape was conceived as a way of subverting the idea of "representation" in sculpture. The concept of "image," or figuration, implies heroic monumentality and the commemoration of historic events and personalities, or at the very least, the safe soothing and bourgeois surroundings of a formal garden. Despite these connotations of power and conservatism (both artistic and political) this genre sometimes provokes a deep connection between memory and place.
