The closely connection between art and nature is consistent in the history of art at all time. The nature has been used both as a raw material or/and as facilitator of ideas, but why and how is nature a part of the contemporary art?
The exhibition Rendezvous with Nature seeks to show how a selection of 6 Danish artists works with nature and use nature as a part of expressing artistic ideas as well as personal dreams and experiences. The nature is both what is outside and inside us, and the artists also understands nature as a facilitator for art and as an artistic medium defiantly. The exhibition therefore shows art that not just portrayals the nature, but shows how nature have sought to recreate the visual qualities and impressions of the natural world today.
The exhibition Rendezvous with Nature marks the opening of the new gallery space of Northern Photography Centre in Oulu and is also a part of the development of Nordic Photography Network collaboration between Northern Photography Centre in Oulu, Centrum för Fotografi in Stockholm, Fotogalleriet and FFF Forbundet Frie Fotografer, Oslo and Galleri Image, Aarhus. In connection with the opening of Rendezvous with Nature there will be a Nordic Photography Network meeting.
