Surfacing Earth
curated by Aukje Lepoutre Ravn
Röda Sten Konsthall, Göteborg, Sweden
11 June – 4 September 2016

 

Röda Sten Konsthall is delighted to present Surfacing Earth, an international group exhibition featuring six artists and three artist collaborations whose practices reflect upon the changing awareness of landscape in the age of the Anthropocene.

Acknowledging that the Earth has entered a new geological epoch – the so-called era of the Anthropocene – humanity is today living within radically transformed landscapes. As the classic Modernist demarcations between culture/nature, urban/rural, interior/exterior, subject/object and natural/artificial have started to dissolve, new configurations of landscapes are appearing, not least caused by global climate change. Nature, man and technology have simply become overlapping entities – a fact which to a profound extend challenges humanity to move towards new and modified states of being.
