Seven invited artists developed individual artistic concepts for the ‚Radeberger Brache‘, a rural and protected landscape in the south of the City of Cologne, Germany. The works were materialized through individual artistic investigations and realized through the medium of printed matter: a diverse spectrum of foldable leaflets that allow a critical artistic examination through text, image and typography. Together they will form an open archive for future (maybe utopian) spatial concepts within the context of an urban, green, rural landscape.
'ghosts' by Gabi Schillig is an experimental exploration of natural spaces, geometrical objects, plant forms, and materials from the raderberger brache. using 3D digital scans, drone footage, and x-ray technology, virtually constructed realities are layered with human perception. this results in a new, hybrid, artificial landscape in which forms, dot clouds, and geometries, regardless of their dimensions, are layered on top of each other in a kind of “geometrical ballet.” If pedestrians were to take these elements—materialized in the form of objects—and carry them back to the real space, the landscape, the fact that they have been brought to life would create a performative, surreal place where the boundaries between digital and analogue space are blurred.
