Unnatural- until October 28, 2012

UNNATURAL presents scientific, romantic, conceptual, poetic, sensual and ecological conceptions of nature through a variety of strategies that reflect advances in technology in the twenty-first century. The works in the exhibition question conventional means and methods of representing the natural world and metaphorically embody both the paradoxical longing to fuse with nature and the threat embedded in such fusion.

The artists selected for UNNATURAL come from diverse cultural backgrounds and work in a wide range of media including video, photography, sculpture and installation. These artists seem to be stretching the limits of time and place, while collecting and assembling imagery from different sources to create a new, artificial form of nature. The majority of the artists in this show are Israeli-born which charges the exhibition with a political accent that relates to nature, territories and landscape in critical ways.

UNNATURAL represents the far-fetched fusion of reality, fantasy and simulation. At the same time, it shows the freedom of the imagination and the wonders of simulation technology, which make the inconceivable conceivable. It reveals how the unmediated sense of awe and wonder provoked by nature has been replaced by the work of art, which enables us to marvel at the act of representation and to re-imagine nature, while celebrating the wonders of the human imagination.
