Olaf Holzapfel, Region
The countryside surrounds the city; it is its shell, mirror, source, its other. Rural activity is not secondary or pre-modern, but of equal consequence to what we regard as contemporary, primarily the urban centers. After a decade of focussing on virtual space and its connectedness to the public domain, Olaf Holzapfel (b. Görlitz, 1969; lives and works in Berlin and Dresden) addresses the connection between technology and nature. His works explore the transformation of material into technology, which originally begins in the rural, the agrarian.
