TERRA INCOGNITA (2015)

The represented artists in the exhibition TERRA INCOGNITA at KRETS, work with different concepts and materials. Some works are documenting, some are romanticizing and others deceive the viewer’s eye. Some materials are refined and others raw.

 

The works are results of different processes, somehow dealing with nature. Some use the idea of nature, exploring it in contrast to a civilized, cultured world. Others are more direct confrontations. With these works, we hope to share and explore questions dealing with our (the contemporary human’s) relation to nature and its expressions.

 

TERRA INCOGNITA, the title of our book and of the exhibition, is a term used in cartography for regions that have not yet been mapped or documented. It is also the title of Jens Henricson’s contribution to the exhibition, which depicts a kidney cancer cell magnified 180 times. The artwork is reminiscent of how similar the microscopic sometimes is to the macroscopic. Henricson’s work is also the cover of our book.
