Nils Udo contemporary art installation and video — Radeau d’Automne
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
