Dana Meyer and Wieland Payer
The expeditions of Dana Meyer and Wieland Payer lead to remote places of longing that most people only travel to in their imagination. Even more, they leave the frames of our time. Their findings are useless for tour operators and commodity corporations.
The insects from Dana Meyer's "South Pacific Expedition" were ostensibly caught between 1906 and 1910, classified, stored in jars and neatly labelled. They are knowledgeably and artistically chased out of metal, chiselled and partly coloured.
Wieland Payer travelled the Andes and the jungle in Humboldt's footsteps. He encountered landscapes full of natural wonders and supernatural phenomena, collected artefacts and recorded his impressions in masterfully executed large-format pastels.
