ART MORNING: A CONVERSATION WITH VISUAL ARTIST HANNAH TOTICKI AND RESEARCHER AND CURATOR AT MEDICAL MUSEION ADAM BENCARD
With the new exhibition Mental Landscapes, SPECTA shows the gallery’s first solo presentation of the Danish visual artist Hannah Toticki. Central to Toticki’s practice is a consistent focus on the conditions of the contemporary human being in a time where we celebrate speed, efficiency and self-realization. In Mental Landscapes, she also addresses our relationship – or lack of relationship – to nature. Throughout art history, depictions of nature have reflected man’s relationship to our surroundings, but today the globe is in such a critical state that these depictions also “reflect back” and point to our own mental state. We have a hard time really seeing ourselves as – not just connected to – but as a part of nature.
