      Baker, Steve; University of Derby (Museum Ostwall im Dortmunder U, 2014)
      The animals driven to death on the roads remain lying until the tires are all to remove mortal remains, dedicated to the art historian, researcher, author and artist Steve Baker in his roadkill series. Baker started when he got one run over rabbits on a country road in Norfolk / UK saw. This impression occupied him so much back then that after half mile back to the accident site. He leaned over his bike so he did that animal could directly record from above with his camera. In the same formal rigor, with a view from above on the dead animals and the since then, bicycle pedals have made Baker his depressing recordings.
    • Scapeland

      Baker, Steve; University of Derby (2013)
      I am an art historian and artist working in the interdisciplinary field of animal studies. The photographic series Scapeland (2013 to date) is an ongoing inquiry into the construction of ethically-engaged pictorial space. Work from the series was first exhibited in Ecce Animalia at the Museum of Contemporary Sculpture in Poland in 2014, and discussed in my plenary paper for the accompanying conference Animals and their People: The Fall of the Anthropocentric Paradigm? I have used subsequent conference and exhibition opportunities to take this inquiry forwards. The paired digital images that comprise each piece in the Scapeland series create a constructed pictorial space that is nevertheless grounded in the natural and cultural landscape of East Anglia, from which all the images derive. Significant influences on the series include Niklas Luhmann’s notion of art as “’mprobable evidence’, Peter Osborne’s work on constructedness and on the necessary incompletion of projects in his 2013 book on the philosophy of contemporary art, and Deleuze and Guattari’s distinction between smooth and striated space. Most importantly and most recently, Ronald Broglio’s assertion in his work on landscape imagery that ‘haptic spatiality’ offers opportunities ‘to reorganize human relations to nature’ has led me specifically to explore the construction of less anthropocentric forms of pictorial space, both in my Scapeland series and in other areas of my practice. In terms of outcomes, Scapeland remains my most widely exhibited and reproduced series, giving me opportunities to work with curators in the UK, Europe and USA who continue to offer new perspectives on the work and to present it to new audiences. The 2020 the exhibition As Kingfishers Catch Fire: Animalities in Artists’ Imagination at Limerick City Gallery of Art includes a selection of pieces from the Scapeland series, half of which have not previously been exhibited.
