PRESS RELEASE

EXPEDITION NATURE
Not all who wander are lost

CODA Museum Apeldoorn | 05.11.2017 to 04.03.2018

Paradisical landscapes and fairy tale-like nature scenes, or melancholic, absurd, frightening and alienating. EXPEDITION NATURE shows works by over twenty artists who each focus on natural, scenic themes in different ways. At CODA's request, visual artist Karin Bos made a diverse, wide-ranging selection of artists working in various disciplines. Some of them approach the landscape in a documental way, while others react manipulatively or opt for a more scientific approach.  

The artists in EXPEDITION NATURE find their inspiration outside the walls of their studios. National or international travels – sometimes even into outer space – foster ideas, images, and stories. As romantics, explorers, researchers, storytellers or inventors, the artists in EXPEDITION NATURE highlight the scenery around them. In some cases, the works themselves travel a long way on the road to completion.

Part of EXPEDITION NATURE focusses on the work that Karin Bos (1966) has made in the last ten years. The scenic aspect of her paintings and works on paper is the leitmotiv in her exploration of the relationship between humans and the landscape or nature. Bos’ paintings depict fairy tale-like but also alienating and disturbing landscapes. With carefully chosen colours and use of light she creates a cinematic and charged view of a world full of stories, where nothing is what it seems and where a cheerful holiday scene could just as well be the site of some horrible crime. This ambiguity is a characteristic feature of Bos' work. The balance of power between men and women, adults and children or between children is a recurring theme.
Travel is essential to the creation of new work for Karin Bos. Inspiration does not come from images created by others; she wants to observe and experience it all first-hand, to then translate it onto canvas or paper. A lot of her source material was collected in Spain. Here, Bos finds a landscape that inspires her. Not the well-ordered and structured natural scenery of the Netherlands but bare, desert-like and desolate stretches of land. Unruly, rugged landscapes that are not immediately pleasing and that cause Bos to wonder if she could also tell stories about humanity without actually depicting people in the landscape.
The artists were selected with a connection to Karin Bos' work in mind. Besides nature and the scenic element, human intervention in nature is also featured in the works of several of the artists. All of the selected works reflect the inquisitive and open mindset of the artists that created them.
EXPEDITION NATURE is about seeking, finding, travelling but also about wandering, drifting, and loss. Go explore and discover the world that the artists in this exhibition have opened up!
