Helene Schmitz at Meken

A few days ago I visited Meken in Smedjebacken. Meken is an art gallery housed in an old smithy. Helene Schmitz had a vernissage and showed a selection of pictures from her work “Thinking like a mountain”.

Helene’s words: “In this work, I wanted to portray the violent transformation of nature in northern Europe in our time. My experience is that during my lifetime, the notion of the wild, and man-untouched nature, has broken down. My photographs can be seen as meditations on man’s relationship to nature’s resources – a global, highly industrial and automated transformation of landscapes. Something that has been going on in large parts of the world for the last three hundred years at an ever faster pace”.

The exhibition is open until November 8, 2020
Opening hours: Thurs – Fri at 12 – 17, Sat – Sun at 12 – 15 | closed: 31/10 – 1/11
The next stop for the exhibition is Washington …
