nature at it’s best
Natur vom Feinsten 

 

Biomorphic, vegetal, and crystalline forms have been the nucleus of Franz Xaver Ölzant’s sculptural body of work since the 1960s. In honor of his 85th birthday, the Galerie Straihammer und Seidenschwann are dedicating an exhibition to the multi-faceted theme of nature. The show divulges an emotional approach to nature while exploring the interfaces of art, the environment, science, and everyday life. Seven artists pose questions on the politically and socially motivated treatment of nature, transferring the complex processes of nature into the sphere of the arts. Wilderness and retreat, digital and real idyllic images, micro- and macroscopic structures, cosmic contexts, physics, and geometry are all part of the exhibited works of art, which together reflect the realities of our time.
