Nils Udo’s Radeau d’Automne will be seen at the Galerie Claire Gastaud from 23/11/2013 till 25/01/2014.

Nils-Udo is a Bavarian artist who has been creating environmental art since the 1960s when he moved away from painting and the studio and began to work with, and in nature.

“Even if I work parallel to nature and only intervene with the greatest possible care, a basic internal contradiction remains. It is a contradiction that underlies all of my work, which itself can’t escape the inherent fatality of our existence. It harms what it touches : the virginity of nature… To realize what is possible and latent in Nature, to literally realize what has never existed, utopia becomes reality. A second life suffices. The event has taken place. I have only animated it and made it visible.” Nils Udo

Erez Nevi Pana’s research gives an answer to a specific question: is it possible to conceive design without using any kind of material derived from animals? Born in Bnei Brak (Israel) in 1983, the designer transfers his attitude of deep respect towards life.

Now available through MoMa’s ‘Virtual Views’ programme, Neri Oxman’s latest exhibition not only takes a critical look at the future of architecture and design, but also aims to re-define the role of the designer as the initiator of a process, rather than the decisive form-giver of an object.
