Empire: Extremely Detailed And Powerful Post-apocalyptic Dioramas By Lori Nix And Kathleen Gerber

‘Because the work features a model and not a real place, it creates a safe space to think about larger ideas of disaster. Devoid of people, these spaces become meditative and full of possibilities. Landscapes are more than a visual record of an environment. They also capture the emotional, sometimes spiritual, essence of a place. Empire presents a world transformed by climate uncertainty and a shifting social order as it stumbles towards a new kind of frontier. These places are eerily beautiful but also unsettling in their stillness and silence. Long ago, man entered the landscape and forced nature to his will. Once grand and emblematic of strength and prosperity, these landscapes now appear abused and in decay, and it is uncertain how they will continue to (d)evolve.’ – Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber
Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber’s new exhibition, titled ‘Empire’, will be hosted at Catherine Edelman Gallery, Chicago (Mar.2 – Apr. 28, 2018).
