Pumpkins in Berlin, A.D. 2016

Starting out from the idea that the artificial is developing more and more influence in our everyday lives, Han Seok Hyun examines this phenomenon’s various manifestations.
In a multifaceted use of installation, photography and sculpture, he draws the viewer’s attention to manipulations of nature that are viewed meanwhile as
a matter of course.
Here, his aim is to shed light on the changing relationships between man and nature across generations, above all with respect to the standardization of plants and foodstuffs, and an attendant romanticizing of natural phenomena.
The focus is on the manifestations of artificial nature in our environment.

Han Seok Hyun is a grantee of the Arts Council Korea.
His project Pumpkins in Berlin, A.D. 2016 has been generously supported by the Botanical Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem.
