Rethinking Nature / Rethinking Landscape - EMoP 2021
May. 09 2021 - Sep. 05 2021
Add to Calendar 09/05/2021 05/09/2021 Europe/Brussels Rethinking Nature / Rethinking Landscape - EMoP 2021

The theme chosen for the eighth edition of the European Month of Photography in Luxembourg is Rethinking Nature / Rethinking Landscape. Beyond its clear link to the current issue of the relationship between human beings and their environment, this theme serves to showcase aesthetic practices in the landscape genre that, while new, have been detectable in the photography medium since its inception.

Since the more radical positions of the artists of the New Topographics movement in the 60s and the arrival of digital media in the 90s, the codes of landscape representation have changed dramatically. From this, a new kind of landscape photography has emerged in the form of a mixed media experience.

In choosing Rethinking Nature / Rethinking Landscape as the theme for this year’s joint project, the European Month of Photography Association has sought to harness the power of photography to extend the debate on ecological issues through new and inventive ways of looking at nature and landscape.

The five artists selected display a deep interest in the complexities of the relationship between man and nature, each one reconsidering in his or her own way the modes of representation and fictions related to nature and landscape.

Vanja Bu?an’s photographs plunge the viewer into a dreamlike, phantasmagorical universe with curiously arranged ecosystems. Inka & Niclas presents disturbed visions of landscapes that are both strange and sublime, while Danila Tkachenko’s photographs of ruined Russian rural villages bear witness to an historical era that has vanished. Anastasia Mityukova’s and Maria-Magdalena Ianchis’ representations of Greenland’s icebergs and icescapes employ different forms of mental and real imagery to create installations in which the core concepts of archive and memory are employed in an attempt to embody the “stigmata” of the Anthropocene, and to fill the void left by photography’s failure to represent the complexity of nature.
