Nostalgia for Nature (IANN comtemporay art photography in Asia, Volume 2)
by Peter Sutherland
Publisher's Description
This issue of IANN is titled Nostalgia for Nature and it contains an array of works tied under the theme dealing with the inseparable relationship between nature and human. Peter Sutherland has photographed deer that have wandered into the city and Stephen Gill has captured the neighbourhood of Hackney in London in the Hackney Flower project, minutely detailing the human longing for nature. In contrast, the toy deer that appears in photographs by Korean artist Yong Hun Lee look like stuffed animals that have become extinct due to destruction of nature, and New JPEGs by Thomas Ruff seem even more artificial because of the grids from the shape of pixels. Furthermore, images by Korean artist Jungjoo Kim are representative of the mechanical and cold metallic city through drawings, objects and photographs.
