In keeping with his previous photographic explorations, Ori Gersht’s new series imbues a particular landscape with symbolic meaning through references to local history and beliefs.  Falling Petals took him to Japan in springtime of 2010 to capture the short-lived bloom of cherry blossoms, and their symbolic usage in the country. He visited both ancient regions of western Japan and urban cities affected by nuclear wars, including Hiroshima and Tokyo. Cherry blossoms are a well-known cultural symbol in... [more]

The Austrian Cultural Forum has been consistently staging politically oriented exhibitions for a few years now, surrounding pertinent historical events and current conundrums.  NineteenEightyFour follows suit with a collection of works that consider surveillance methods and structures of control.

Consisting of sculptural objects and twelve large-scale, hand-stitched silk tapestries, Wayward North outlines the abstract narrative of Iku and Nailah within the structure of constellations.

Elisabeth Smolarz’s Farewell East Germany is a straightforward three-channel video that explores the remnants of collective memory in individuals raised in communist Eastern Germany (GDR). A former resident of the Eastern Bloc, Smolarz was born in Communist Poland and emigrated to Germany in 1989, following the fall of the Berlin wall. The video assumes an added meaning when viewed within this personal context—it is not only historically informative, but also embodies the artist’s q... [more]

Yet it is precisely these overlooked and unsightly structures that Dutch photographer Bas Princen seeks to capture in his recent series Refuge, Five Cities (2009).
