Exhibit: Architecture | Landscape

Architecture 
| Landscape forms a visual starting point for a broad array of interpretations of the tangible experience of reality. The works of the eight Austrian artists selected for this exhibition examine, in a wide range of ways, the perception and manipulation of our daily surroundings – worlds at once graspable and utterly alien, in part constructed (or perhaps in turn destroyed) by man or, not least, ones artificially generated, seemingly infinite in their reproducibility.
