0GMS Gallery: Lithosphere’s change

0GMS Gallery presents 

Lithosphere's change 

Markus Jeschaunig 

31.12.2013 – 30.01.2014 

On Dec. 31st, Tuesday, 9 p.m.- 2 a.m., the 0gms gallery opens the exhibition of Markus Jeschaunig.

The Lithosphere, geological crust and landscape of planet Earth, is the keeper of the resources we use in our daily life. In the exhibition “Lithosphere's change” Markus Jeschaunig presents recent works, that are investigating relations between fossil resources, energy, technology and the biosphere. His installations and videos raise questions about the Anthropocene, the age of global impact on Earth's ecosystems (called out by Paul J. Crutzen in “Geology of mankind” in Nature 2002). Do we need to change the reading of our landscapes, to find new ways towards a post-oil world? The special moment of the exhibition opening on New Year's eve, underline the topic of change. It tries to catch the visitors entrepreneurial in the mood of “change”, in the moment of the year, where the reflection about personal future is probably most present. 

Markus Jeschaunig (born in 1982) Agent in the Biosphere, lives and works in Graz and the Biosphere. Jeschaunig’s art practice deals with issues of the relation between culture and environment. Inspired by the dynamics and forces of the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere the artist seeks to decipher natural, social, spatial and economic systems to formulate a critique of the inertia of the current system. Jeschaunig studied art and architecture at the University of Art and Design Linz, Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University Istanbul and Vienna University of Technology from 2002 to 2010. He participated in the Change Course Conference, organised by the Club of Rome in Winterthur 2012.
