We are Nature

Munich gallery Culturesphere presents the photo art exhibition "People - Nature - Future".

“People – Nature – Future” features the internationally award-winning photographs of Norwegian-Finnish artist duo Karoline Hjorth & Riitta lkonen. In their remarkable art project »Eyes as Big as Plates«, which has been ongoing since 2011, the artists explore the relationship between people and nature. To this end, they have travelled the world and portrayed people in a wide variety of landscapes. The portrait series shows individuals wrapped in artistic sculptures made from elements of the environment. Nature serves both as content and context here. With playful ease, symbiotic narratives and new aesthetic worlds emerge, conveying a strong message with an aura of stillness: We are nature!

In their continuous search for the modern human’s relationship to nature, the artist duo has explored Norway, Finland, France, the USA, Great Britain, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Sweden, South Korea, the Czech Republic, Japan, Senegal, the Outer Hebrides, Tasmania and Greenland. Within the framework of the exhibition “People – Nature – Future”, the two artists will also visit Munich and carry out a photo shoot here as a further milestone of their art project.
