Geyrhalter takes us on a gripping and moving visual journey through deserted sites around the world: from the Fukushima exclusion zone, through desolate hospitals and schools, to forsaken shopping centers, to expose the way nature overcomes humanity. The director uses no voice-over, no talking heads, no human presence nor text of any kind to present a long and well-designed series of static shots, at an effective pace and with an intelligent soundtrack. The result is a contemporary perspective, which - even before invoking questions about human relation to nature - is an instantly stimulating work of art.

To perceive is to be aware, to grasp and to recognise. It’s our senses, our taste and feeling about something or someone...It is the image. How do we define the basis of visualisation? How do we challenge the modes of communication through the image? How far can we go in abstracting and manipulating our perception and illusion of time, space and sound…until it’s not perceivable anymore? What is the core in our own perception? This selection presents art works exploring the boundaries of perception and modes of interpretation of time. Artists: Irene Cruz, Levi van Veluw.
These artists bring into focus the complexity of the relation between human and nature, but also the relationship of nature and culture in our current situation. These works undertake and remediates these matters through poetic encounters with nature, and that by simple poetical gestures and a contemplative narrative, insist on a moment of reflection. Artists: Irene Cruz, Nicolás Rupcich, Chrischa Venus Oswald, shingo yoshida.
