This artis¬≠tic pro¬≠ject loo¬≠ks into trans¬≠for¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠ons and defor¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠ons of land¬≠s¬≠capes as con¬≠se¬≠quen¬≠ces of the extrac¬≠tion and uti¬≠liz¬≠a¬≠ti¬≠on of raw materials.
Documentary-inves¬≠ti¬≠ga¬≠ti¬≠ve and sci¬≠en¬≠ti¬≠fic approa¬≠ches are used along¬≠side with approa¬≠ches that are inspi¬≠red by visu¬≠al and acoustic impres¬≠si¬≠ons or by chan¬≠ges in land¬≠s¬≠cape and city¬≠scape. Spatiality and struc¬≠tures as well as the mate¬≠ria¬≠li¬≠ty of the extrac¬≠ted raw mate¬≠ri¬≠als and the cycles in which they flow offer oppor¬≠tu¬≠nities for artis¬≠tic engagement.
This ‚Äúdig¬≠ging through‚ÄĚ the the¬≠ma¬≠tic field brings forth new con¬≠texts and asso¬≠cia¬≠ti¬≠ons. Against the back¬≠drop of the Leipzig regi¬≠on and its histo¬≠ry of mining, indus¬≠try and trans¬≠for¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠on, we have invi¬≠ted artists to pre¬≠sent their expe¬≠ri¬≠en¬≠ces with the topic and the results of their rese¬≠arch in an exhi¬≠bi¬≠ti¬≠on, thus put¬≠ting them up for discussion.
