until 22.06. | #2487ARTatBerlin | Galerie Eigenheim presents from 31st May 2019 an exhibition with photography and installation by the artist Julia Scorna at the salon of the gallery.
In her photographs, objects and installations, Julia Scorna discovers a sensual, poetic way discussing the human being and behavior towards nature. Scorna deals with sustainability issues, as well as beliefs in the digital age; embedded between progress and the eternal search for meaningfulness of existence.
Her photographs are taken during many travels on which the analog medium format camera is her constant companion. Due to the choice of a film material with high photosensitivity, the large-format prints as well as the play with the depth of focus and natural or artificial light situation, often creates a picturesque aesthetic, which quite reveals references to the romantic painting of the 19th century. The pictures showing mountain views, which are influenced by humans, or landscapes, in which strange-looking testimonies of human existence, such as cement plants or wind turbines are embedded; In Marocco Scorna photographed palm trees, which are actually transmission towers, or took pictures of underground garden in the Paris Metro in another series. The absence of men – is something that these photographs, created in recent years, often have in common. In this way, Scorna develops an almost dystopian future scenario, in which men seems to be compared to nature only as a footnote.
The artist combines these photographs sometimes in the staged dialogue with installations and objects. Coal, energy-saving bulbs, concrete, sand from Brittany, fairy lights, emallie bowls and found objects are brought into overall compositions, such as Buchen musst du suchen or The Coming Out. An everexpanding series of zoo photographs Being Animal shows animals embedded in man-made typified biotopes — creating a fascinating allegory of the existing relationship between men and nature.
