Nadan is honored to have invited six artists, Lucas Foletto Celinski, Cai Dongdong, Jakob Ganslmeier, Michal Martychowiec, Loreal Prystaj, and Ana Zibelnik, to participate in our group exhibition titled “Ab Bild.” In the present era, people are increasingly relying on visual imagery to access information and comprehend the world. Visual imagery possesses the unique ability to transcend linguistic and cultural boundaries. It not only reflects material reality but also serves as a rich reservoir of information. The information it preserves can transcend the limitations of reality itself, transforming into a powerful tool that reshapes our perception of the world and gradually replaces actual reality. Simultaneously, visual imagery reveals aspects of subjectivity, political influence, and manipulation, offering a profound examination of the multifaceted nature of images.
In this exhibition, the artists use visual elements in various ways, borrowing or incorporating them, to explore a wide range of subjects and individual practices, including the body, environment and ideology. Through their unique observational approaches, they unveil the complexity of a world that is often imperceptible to the naked eye, conveying deeper messages that go beyond the actual image subjects. They encourage viewers to start from the images, delve deep into them, and ultimately break free from the confines of the image to explore profound intellectual and emotional resonances.
