June 28, 2008 - CCA Andratx - SUPERNATURAL
June 28, 2008


CURATOR: Dr. Friederike Nymphius
10th May – 10th August 2008

VENUE: CCA Kunsthalle
C/ Estanyera, 2; 07150 Andratx; Majorca; Spain


After re-opening in March 2008, the Majorcan art centre CCA Andratx, dedicated to the creation and exhibition of contemporary art, is pleased to announce the opening of the second international exhibition produced for the CCA Kunsthalle.

SUPERNATURAL is curated by Dr. Friederike Nymphius (DE), a corporate art curator at EPO and member of the CCA curatorial team managed by Patricia Asbaek (DK). Participating artists will be staying and working in the CCA Studios.

SUPERNATURAL is conceived especially for CCA Kunsthalle. It features painting, sculpture, video, film, installation, photography as well as new media by 24 international contemporary artists.

Our idealistic concepts of nature are proving to be archaic, and we are re-awakening to a new version of nature. The exhibition SUPERNATURAL reflects the vision of a nature strangely altered through cross-pollination with popular culture, technology and romanticism. While “nature” refers to both real and fictional ideas of nature, “super” relates to constructed images, artifice, utopia or to scientific research.

SUPERNATURAL explores nature as a site, as an object of perception and a symptom of fascination, while acknowledging that it is also a culturally produced concept coded in a specific time and space. At the interface of nature, reality and artifice the exhibition develops new visions of nature that prove their contemporary critical background as well as a new particular romantic sensitivity for nature.

The works presented are multidimensional and multilayered, what they share are the almost paradoxical references in their exploration of theme. Their subversive, incisive and sensitive commentaries on the subject create a highly varied SUPERNATURAL imagery.
