Neue Achse (New Axis)
We take great pleasure in inviting you to the first solo exhibition by Nina Wiesnagrotzki at Galerie Loris.
The mountain is a universal axis, a link between heaven and earth. It connects heaven and earth both topographically and ideally. Two thirds of Japan are mountainous terrain. The mountain is a retreat from society. Seat of many gods, it is climbed or made accessible to the public as a sacred replicate in urban neighborhoods. The mountain is subject to a continuous return in Japanese history and culture. Perhaps the importance of the mountain in Japanese culture has something to do with the fact that it can physically save you from a tsunami. In the aftermath of the disaster in Japan in March, 2011, new mountains arose – composed of scrap.
