May 17th – July 21st

Angelika Markul’s artistic practice is at the crossover of video, sculpture and installation, providing a vision both poetic and plastic about dangerous or conflicting situations. Her work draws a map of humanity to its remote remote places. She is interested in unusual and desolate landscapes, time, memory, humankind and nature. In Tierra de Origen, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Galeria Solo, one can feel the tension between nature and culture, between life and death. Two videos are shown, Zone Yonaguni (2016), which was recorded in Yonaguni (Japan) and Si les heures m’étaient comptées (2016), recorded in the Naica Mines (Mexico). The artist’s gaze makes contact with those landscapes, which allow it to be reivented both through the artist’s eyes and the spectators. Her video installations create perplexity about those beautiful natural spaces and the awareness of their finitude. The way in which time passes in each one of its video makes the notion of «carving the time» developed by Tarkovsky sense when thinking about the work of Angelika Markul.
