About

Who isn’t driven by Desire? Without question, it is one of the strongest sources of motivation. It is not, however, a word most of us would plug into Google in hopes of bringing up images of landscape, nature and sustainability. Yet with its opening experience, ESMoA is doing exactly that! Assembling a bizarre yet beautiful collection of desirable artworks that introduce the exhibition platform’s curatorial principles of chaos and paradox to ignite creative query. Chaotic Ingredients: Romantic and realistic views, disturbing and comforting arrangements, astonishing and questionable craftsmanship, precise and adventurous experiments, idealistic and provocative efforts, spontaneous and disciplined approaches, conservative and avant-garde standpoints, incredible and intriguing compositions, concentrated and dreamy looks, iconic and ordinary combinations, fragile and energetic material, ambitious and relaxed encounters prepared in oil and acryl, silicon and metal, watercolor and pencil, photography and painting, copper and wood, paper and canvas, by classic, modern and contemporary artists Christo, Gustave Courbet, Camille Corot, Peter Doig, Wolfgang Ellenrieder, Lyonel Feininger, Franz Gertsch, Andreas Gursky, Alex Katz, Anselm Kiefer, Wilhelm Leu, Toni Matelli, Fritz Overbeck, Michail Pirgelis, Camille Pissarro, Christian Rohlfs, Wilhelm Schirmer, Michael Sistig, Amely Spötzl, Norbert Taddeusz and Cornelius Völcker. Paradox Disposition: If we love to see nature in the most pure, realistic and untouched conditions, why do we seek to exploit nature in every possible way, physically and spiritually? Start Exploration: Desire may be among our strongest motivators, but in combination with landscapes it reveals our contradictory perception of nature and our twisted approach to solving one of the greatest challenges of this and the decades ahead: sustainability. If chaos is the nutrient solution for development, this paradox could easily work as its trigger for creative thinking. Experiencing the explosion of extraordinary artwork, ESMoA invites everyone to feel its inspiring spark.
