"When we think to attach ourselves to any point and to fasten to it, it wavers and leaves us." Blaise Pascal

In the exhibition "Landschaftsgänger" it is not the landscape that makes up the subject but what might potentially happen out there and what we - as viewers - could possibly imagine while looking at the picture. In this way, the landscape is a stage on which paradox constellations develop and bizarre dramas take place. But how come young artists of today are starting to explore depictions of nature again? For them, the fascinating part lies "in between", in the grey area forming at the borderlines between nature and human life. The artists shift between reality and fiction, between the natural living environment and a more or less intact civilisation. Here, at this pivot of the seemingly familiar, the landscape becomes a construct, a metaphor for a crossfire of artistic intensions.
