Furthermore, do not miss the screenings in our blackbox with works by the Austrian artist Lukas Marxt (1983).
In his work, Marxt is always searching for relics of human impact upon nature. In the early stages of his projects, he tries to find places that are hard for mankind to settle, and then observe them from a perspective of “deep time”. In works such Reign of Silence (2013) and Circular Inscription (2016), the artist records a human intervention in nature and his practice makes clear his conceptual reference to the Land Art. Then Captive Horizon (2015) operates on a delicate line between reality and illusion like Black Rain White Scars (2014) in which Marxt shows Hong Kong, and the moment is when electricity, wind, atmospheric pressure, and plasma are playing against each other. Finally, his recent Cape Ground (2016) tells us about the Anthropocene and the Bosporus, a connecting piece of inner Eurasian border.
