The current social engagement with environmental issues has developed into a debate of mythical proportions: the struggle seems to be one between good and evil, fact and fiction, fear and hope. But can the dividing line between the environmentally friendly and environmentally polluting be drawn so accurately? Ecoscape brings together a number of artists whose work places them in a critical position in the current debate on how we interact with our habitat. The works in the exhibition allow us a view of a confusing world, in which the polluted landscape appears paradisiacal, a global issue becomes personal, and beauty also has a gruesome aspect.
