Regula Dettwiler
Within the series ”Areas of Action”

Opening 19 February 7 p.m.

Regula Dettwiler investigates the impact of ersatz worlds and staged environments (shopping malls, entertainment complexes) on our understanding and experience of nature. Working in various different media (watercolour, photography, slide projections, video, computer animation), she examines the aspect of artificiality as the embodiment of contemporary ”authentic experience“. For several years, she has been working in the manner of a naturalist on a Natural History of the Artificial World. In this project, her interest is focused primarily on artificial orchids found at shopping centres all over the world, which she photographs and catalogues. Like a scientist returned from a long research expedition, she presents her findings in slide shows, as collection prints and in other media.

Regula Dettwiler, born 1966 in Oberkulm (CH), lives in Vienna. View of the exhibition
