WIELAND PAYER - TERRA INCOGNITA
March 20 to April 30
postponed to June 2020
Martians and Icelanders
With the new series, Wieland Payer bridges the gap between the mighty landscapes of Iceland and the desert planet. Inspired by the atmospheric and at the same time detailed photos of the Mars mission Curiosity and the ideas for greening Mars, Payer gives free rein to the imagination and spins delicate and gigantic plants in the red sand ...
Wieland Payer (* 1981 in Erfurt) studied at the Burg Giebichenstein Halle University of Art (diploma, 2009), the Accademia di Belle Arti Rome (Erasmus scholarship) and at the Royal College of Art in London (scholarship from the Studienstiftung and the DAAD, Master, 2011). Works by the young artist are in renowned public collections.
