Exhibition Statement by Markus Hoffmann:

“Over the last centuries, humankind has put processes in motion leading to developments for which we no longer have any standards by which to judge them. When humankind itself becomes a natural force – or that which we understood to be nature is now made by humans – then the dualism of nature/culture subject/object no longer function in the accustomed fashion.” (Bernd M. Scherer, Textures of the Anthropocene)

Using radioactivity, rare earth minerals, ocean acidification, carbon dioxide, and other Anthropocenic phenomena as a guiding themes, I have explored how humans have permanently changed the planet. Hovering at the interfaces of science and art, my work and site-specific installations deal with mans’ creation and utilisation of Anthropocenic forces, which have altered forever both nature and the social psyche.
