Paul Fägerskiöld
Blue Marble

€33.30 (excl. VAT)

In his painterly work, Paul Fägerskiöld creates semiotic hyper-landscapes full of metaphors, symbols and references from popular culture, literature and science. Following contemporary, profound questions about humanity and its role in the universe, Fägerskiöld recognizes the potential in art to constantly point out new perspectives and to think about alternatives.

The catalog appears for the artists’ first institutional solo exhibition in Switzerland. The title “Blue Marble” refers to the famous photograph of the globe, which was shot in 1972 from a distance of 29,000 km. This new perspective on the world became the symbol of the environmental protection movement of the 1970s and the formulation of the global ethic. Symbolically for this, the artist contributes in his own way to the ongoing discourse with the exhibited works.
