Seeing the Unseen: An Interview with Public Studio

by Nives Hajdin

C Magazine, Winter 2014, pp. 18-26

The Collaborative work of Elle Flanders and Tamara Sawatzky, known as Public Studio, is diverse and idiosyncratic, combining film and architecture to explore the role of images in shaping and understanding everyday conflicts in war zones. Their most recent exhibition, Under the Last Sky, held at O'Born Contemporary in the autumn of 2013, draws from Flanders' experiences in the Middle East, exploring images of war nor readily depicted by the media. Nives Hajdin met up with them in Toronto to talk about their work.
