Beyond Human Perception

Share:

The Priska Pasquer Gallery in Cologne currently presents the exhibition ‘From the Far Side of the Moon’ with works by Radenko Milak. The show continues until 26 August 2017.  

In our digitised world, the production of images seems almost out of control. Every second, hundreds of thousands of new pictures are being created. In his work, Radenko Milak poses questions about our visual memory in this digital age. The artist will also be represented at this year’s Venice Biennale, with an exhibition consisting of watercolours, paintings, drawings as well as an animated film.

His second solo show at the Priska Pasquer Gallery includes four large-format aquarelles created especially for this exhibition. The 200x140cm panels are among the first watercolour paintings he has completed in such monumental dimensions. They represent visual worlds that become visible only with the aid of the most sophisticated optical technology: nano-microscopes show us the tiniest of structures, while the Hubble space telescope brings us images taken in the limitless expanse of the universe.

By selecting some of these micro or macro photographs and translating them into monochrome watercolour paintings, Milak transforms the digital process back into a subjective, handcrafted medium which is artistic in the traditional sense. Seeing the images does not enable us read or decipher their contents: they are abstract formations, fractals from another world which are ultimately beyond our grasp.
