What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
At least, the events of the past two years have shown us how fragile the ground we walk on is. Casting a light on current global issues such as the Anthropocene, neoliberalism, and capitalism, Hungarian artist Kata Geibl examines how rampant individualism has affected the social, political, and economic climate of our world.
Associating image and text in a masterful way, the author captures the zeitgeist of our time, introducing themes without giving answers, prompting the audience to ponder the story behind each image from an associative and personal perspective.
White, muscular bodies, eerie industrialized cities illuminated by golden light, constant references to the power humans wield over nature, all portrayed in soft, otherworldly pastel tones. Geibl’s photographs wink at the reality that flows despite our dependence on the global market.
