Through 25 positions of international photoartists, the Kunsthaus Wien examines our relationship to nature. From September 13, 2017 through February 18, 2018.
The exhibition has taken twenty-five artistic positions by international and Austrian artists working in the medium of photography and video to examine the way in which our relationship with nature is currently reflected from an artistic point of view.
All the works are situated within the interplay between nature as a place of longing and nature as a resource, and anchored in the juxtaposition between vulnerable eco-system and a force of nature capable of enduring all. They demonstrate that the photographic depiction of nature and landscape as a construct shapes our perception of nature; they also illustrate the ways in which we human beings approach, and distance ourselves from, nature.
With works by Darren Almond, Rodrigo Braga, Vanja Bucan, Jennifer Colten, Andreas Duscha, Tomas Eller, Michael Goldgruber, Andreas Gursky, Ilkka Halso, Roni Horn, Michael Höpfner, Axel Hütte, Adam Jeppesen, Jaakko Kahilaniemi, Mathias Kessler, Claudia Märzendorfer, Ola Lanko, Myoung Ho Lee, Ralo Mayer, Simone Nieweg, Charly Nijensohn, Donna Ong, Anna Reivilä, Bruno V. Roels, Michael John Whelan.
