Not Just a Landscape

Neal Beggs / Xavier Martin / Jean-Marc Huitorel / Duncan McClaren / The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner / Eureka

SA 25.10 2008 — 14:00

Werner Herzog, still from The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner
Not Just a Landscape is the first of a new serie events, documenting filiations around and between the artists' oeuvres. The title for the program alludes a.o. to Werner Herzog and his famous notion of 'ecstatic truth': the reflection of reality through a subjective, intensified angle. Focus is the experience and exploration of the contemporary landscape through artistic actions and the question how to transfer these actions and experiences to the exhibition space.

Guests include Xavier Martin, Neal Beggs, curator and critic Jean-Marc Huitorel (°1953, Rennes) and writer Duncan McClaren (°1957, Blairgowrie). The program ends with the screening of Werner Herzog's sports documentary The Great Ecstacy of Woodcarver Steiner (1974) and Shinji Aoyama's feature movie Eureka (2000).
