Art in Nature

04.09 — 08.28

“Drawing with flowers. Painting with clouds. Writing with water.” Nature provides Nils-Udo with all the necessary tools for his creations. He composes his works with nature. He interacts with it without ever violating it and creates ephemeral, poetic installations that change according to the wind and rain. His in situ productions, and the photographs that capture a magical moment before an entire piece is scattered at the slightest gust of wind, have made Nils-Udo an essential artist on the international scene.

The exhibition Art in Nature presents some emblematic photographs of the artist’s work as well as paintings, a technique which he went back to in the 2000s after having abandoned his brushes for almost forty years. From the infinitely big to the infinitely small, the journey in the exhibition runs through the themes that are dear to the artist, such as the figure of the nest, the play of reflections on water, or the majestic power of trees. Around thirty of his works, with oil paintings and images of recomposed nature, allow for the discovery of the work of this contemporary artist with an international standing.
