Martin Asbæk Projects at The Solo Project Basel 2 - 8 June 2008

We are pleased to announce our participation in The Solo Project, a newcomer to the Basel art fair scene.

At The Solo Project Martin Asbæk Projects present Nordic landscapes by photo based artists Trine Søndergaard/Nicolai Howalt and Ebbe Stub Wittrup.

In a series of images entitled TREE ZONE Søndergaard/Howalt have captured the barren landscapes found in areas along the Nordic timber line during winter.

The images represent a humanization of nature: Trees figure as human symbols in a series of "tree portraits" together with larger panoramic landscapes in monumental formats. In this way a suspense is created between immense, impenetrable space and singular, isolated trees.

Presumed Reality (100) by Ebbe Stub Wittrup is a series of 100 landscape fragments in different colours installed in an incomplete grid on the wall. Employing as his springboard a series of found slides from a Norwegian mountain expedition in the late 1950s.

The fragments turn the normal pictorial hierarchy upside down as they consist of backgrounds where the actual motif has been erased in order to focus on elements normally overlooked. Stub Wittrup's recently released catalogue OUTFROMUNDER is based on works from this series.

We are looking forward to welcome you at our booth

Kind regards
