Mankind’s relationship with nature is subject to continual change. The term “anthropocene” marks the beginning of a time of more significant human impact over nature. The ever-changing relationship between man and nature and humankind’s impact on the ecosystem is the starting point to “Visions of Nature”, on view at the Kunst Haus Wien Museum until February next year.
Gathering works by 25 artists, including PIPA Prize 2012 Finalist Rodrigo Braga, the group show champions the idea that nature does not stand detached and aloof from cultural contexts; rather, nature and culture are inseparably linked. Hence, the photographs and videos showcased are situated within the interplay between nature as a place of longing and as a resource, depicting nature as both a vulnerable eco-system and a force capable of enduring all.
“Visions of Nature”, group show featuring 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
