ART AGE
EXPEDITIONS

The Last Stop in July 2012 became the first ArtAge expedition followed by others during the last years.

The Irish philosopher George Berkeley and his idea of Esse est percipi – “to be is to be perceived” inspired all of them expressing natural spaces by ephemeral sculptures and installations, passing moments of art in nature captured within a frame by Karls daughter Christine who joined him as a photographer.

Celebrating Nature by art and supporting reconciliation between human and nature is Karls way.

But feeling the impact of civilisation on Nature as he did with some point of no return coming closer and closer made it impossible for him going on without expressing suffering nature in a deeper way.

 

BORROWED LANDSCAPES

In the Aboriginal belief it is important to tell The Land you are coming.

“We are from the North where the sun shines from the South and the winter is cold and dark, coming in peace with open mind and empty hands for creating Art in Nature, considering The Land as a Borrowed landscape, using thankfully dead branches, stones, sands, flowers, bones, leaves, moss, feathers, water, shadows and lights from the places and reconstructing them immediately after having taken some pictures.”

Lava Poetry I - Impact

Creating art in nature around and in the Snæfell National Park on the Icelandic East coast and as a guest of the Gunnar Gunnarsson Institute gave us amazing opportunities challenged by one of the most sublime landscapes in the world.

The biggest glacier in Europe, the Vatnajökull came closer every day breathing cold and sending rain and fog. It was like walking deeper and deeper inside our souls back to a Time before time, when everything was beginning, also the end.
