Gerhard Marx
Particles, 2020
reconfigured map fragments on canvas,
Work: 140 x 180 cm

Particles, continues Marx’s engagement with discarded and decommissioned Cartographic Archives, with an interest in landscape as social construction; how space is constructed and how in turn, it constructs us. Through physical acts of fragmentation, rupture, migration, agglomeration and collage, Marx aims to disrupt the boundaries and hegemonic claims inherent to these cartographies in a manner that allows for a consideration of new spatial imaginaries.
