At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.


Kelly Richardson

Pillars of Dawn

Canadian artist Kelly Richardson (*1972) belongs to a new generation of artists working with digital technologies to create hyperreal, symbolically highly charged landscapes. Her series of digitally-born works ‘Pillars of Dawn’ imagines a desert landscape in which environmental conditions have crystallized the terrain. The series present a scenario in which we might have to look beyond our current planet for refuge and survival, and they raise myriad questions about how we arrived as such a moment of environmental crisis.
