Opening: Marcelina Wellmer. Solid Landscapes – loose parts
11. November 2022 @ 18:00 - 21:00
With this exhibition, we are pleased to present the new works of Marcelina Wellmer. Her artistic research focuses on the influence of humans on the landscape, the technological dependencies and the dissociations between nature, man and industry.
In „Solid Landscapes – loose parts“ Wellmer presents three of her latest works „Solid Landscapes“, „Porous“, and „Amalgam“. With the video recordings, photographs and objects the artist invites the viewer to take a closer look at the never-ending growth of industrial and production areas and a vast man-made (anti-)fusion of nature and technology.
Some of the connecting points and dependencies that might be discovered in the works seem random, inappropriate and irritating; on the other hand, they open space for new narratives to reflect the tense relationship between humans and nature. Wellmer works are balancing between technical entropy and ambivalent fusion of natural and artificial materials.
graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan/Poland in 2000 with a degree in video and drawing. She is a conceptual artist and photographer based in Berlin. As a media artist, she has been working with video, photography, objects and sound for the past 12 years, exploring symbiotic relations between people and interfaces of information exchange and media, exploring flawed processes of encoding and decoding. In photography, Wellmer explores the powerful influence of humans on the landscape, their technological dependence, and their isolation in a modern world.
