Public Studio is the collective art practice of filmmaker and artist Elle Flanders and architect and artist Tamira Sawatzky. Since 2009, Public Studio has employed a diverse range of media resulting in large-scale public art works, films, immersive installations, lens-based works and socially engaged projects. Public Studio was founded with the intent of exploring antagonisms that occur in and around public space and its disappearance; current instabilities; and the effects of globalization on our everyday landscapes. Their multidisciplinary practice has engaged topics such as war and militarization, globalization, ecology and urbanization and political dissent. With backgrounds in photography, film and architecture, the point of departure for Public Studio is an image that is often formed and informed spatially. Their photographs and immersive film installations consider the relationship between ethics and aesthetics through landscape.
