North Korean Landscapes

19.06.-06.09.2015 10:00-17:00


Opening: 18.06.2015 in the context of the exhibition “Landscape: Transforming an idea”
Curated by: Günther Holler-Schuster

 


The beauty of the North-Korean landscape is not open to travellers. However, it is possible to overcome the inaccessibility of reality using technology such as satellite photography. Google Earth allows us to travel within a virtual space. Wolfgang Temmel pursues a type of mediatised experience of nature when painting his conventional North Korean landscapes, combining computer images with sophisticated painting skills. In this moment, the classic medium of painting is transferred into the context of new media art. Medial anachronism also emphasises the political dimension of the situation. North Korea is not known for its tourism clichés. Rather, it is the military context that motivates visual awareness, driving and intensifying the construction of reality.
