Blees Luxemburg, Rut, 2017, Show, Exhibition or Event, Rut Blees Luxemburg: Edlorado Atlas

Abstract or Description:

Rut Blees Luxemburg’s new work Eldorado Atlas focuses tightly on her local neighborhood in London, a scene of intense transformation and evolving interests.

On one side is the principle of ATLAS, amplified in one of many new towering developments in the vicinity of the ‘digital roundabout’ of Old Street.

On the other side is the re-emergence of nature, manifest in urban allotments and captured in the representation of a vine, growing on the wall of a local corner shop in the shadow of a satellite dish, flourishing, despite horticultural indifference. Eldorado Atlas, an ongoing work, projects a phantasmagorical image of the emerging future city. 

To coincide with the exhibition there was a talk at Paris Photo:
A question of colour - what colour is aesthetically, socially, technically for photography, chaired by David Campany, The Platform, Grand Palais Paris
