Industrial Scars

First Floor
Am 8. November eröffnet die Flo Peters Gallery eine Ausstellung mit Arbeiten des Fotografen und Umweltaktivisten J. Henry Fair. Gezeigt werden Fotografien aus seiner Serie Industrial Scars, in der der Amerikaner in scheinbar schönen Kompositionen die ökologische Ausbeutung unserer Erde dokumentiert. Aus einem Sportflugzeug heraus fotografiert er weltweit die Sünden der Umweltverschmutzung und –zerstörungen unserer Zeit. Von der Ölkatastrophe der leck geschlagenen Plattform Deepwater Horizon im Golf von Mexiko über die Narben, die die Ausbeutung fossiler Energieträger auf unserer Erde hinterlassen bis zu den Abwässern der chemischen Industrie; in geometrischen Formen, Farbflächen und abstrakten Gebilden führt Henry Fair uns die Auswirkungen unseres ökologischen Handelns eindringlich vor Augen.
