Nach der Natur (After Nature)
We at the Loris Gallery are delighted to present Nach der Natur (After Nature)
, by Ruth Hommelsheim.
When using the word “nature” in everyday life we expect to be understood. Content-wisely, however, we most often mean to denote something vague such as, for instance, something “authentic”, “holistic”, or, very simply, “given”. As such, “nature” is a collective term with which we traditionally seek to describe those areas of reality we consider as having come to being independent of man, of man’s contribution. The current political discourse appears to indicate that we can no longer speak of nature straightforwardly. More so: the power structures and image politics the word nature is embedded in are eroding its very entity. Speaking with Bruno Latour, we thus witness the “total dissolution of nature”.
