Remembering Landscape


Opening, exhibition in De Markten, Brussels/ BE

26.04 - 09.06.2019

Exhibition architecture to carry the voice, which is granted by the exhibition's artists and groups of artists to landscape. They create current landscape images located between fiction, symbol and documentation, and appeal to our ability to read and decipher them – but also to the imagination and our capacity to mourn.

"Today many will question the landscape: scientists, activists, farmers, urbanists, architects, artists… A common question is what kind of landscape we desire and how this can construed or portrayed? What is the role of art? How can art close the gap between a landscape past and present in a single image or series of pictures?

These questions were behind the project "Remembering Landscape", in which pictorial strategies are connected to aspects in memory, memorial and establishing the past."

Marianna Christofides, Chloe Dewe Mathews, Lukas Einsele, Anne Heinlein and Göran Gnaudschun, Markus Karstieß, Thomas Kellner, Jan Kempenaers, Aglaia Konrad, Susanne Kriemann, Armin Linke, Andreas Mühe, Alexandra Navratil, Unknown Fields Division, Danny Veys and Kristof Vrancken.
