2Vanishing" is an experiment.

Hadrien de Corneillan (F) provides the title for this exhibition with his painting "Vanishing". Here he paints a forest with thermolabile paint. If the ambient temperature rises to more than 30° Celsius/86° F – the forest disappears from the scene. If UV rays hit the image – it is destroyed. The questions that the artist asks the viewer is: what are the complicated and interconnected relationships between each of us and humanity as a whole with nature and the environment. Where do we see ourselves in these scenarios? What do we feel and what actions do we derive from it?
