SCHLOSS AHAUS KUNSTVEREIN “FOTOKUNST-2.0”

TENTOONSTELLING     ( MET ULF RUNGENHAGEN)  MAART 2014

 

In this show I took the “Schloss”- maybe for all the destruction and bombing and repairing that the building had to suffer in the past – as a center of gravity, that evoked, as a counterpoint, an upward directed gaze, projecting the hortus apertus: an atopic, walled garden in the sky.

 It is a phantasmagoric image, maybe protesting the loss of meaning that the old hortus conclusus suffered, now that  aircrafts, bombs, satellites and drones  and chemical pollution make the air over our heads an area to hide from; the upward gaze possibly one of fear instead of projection of freedom, divinity and paradise.

General idea is that one seeks for lightness, which is time and again to be found in unexpected places and in unexpected ways. This seeking is in some respects a crux of cultural activity, and an important factor in my own creative

General idea is that one seeks for lightness, which is time and again to be found in unexpected places and in unexpected ways. That seeking is in many respects a crux of culture, and certainly a crux of my own creative practice.
