Landscapes with the Fall of Icarus

Statement:

Working between the digital arts and materiality Nacoca Ko questions how we operate as a link between technology and nature.

Digital art in the form of photography, sculpture, and video installation explore how we find our footing at the cliff of acceleration.

What worlds do we build, when the future is in the past, and we navigate through lost horizons? Through this distortion in a time of social distancing, she relates her personal reality from external landscapes into the landscape of the Internet and the anxious landscape of her own mind.

As a kind of footnote, in the tradition of Breughel the Elder’s painting, “Landscape with the Fall of Icarus,” the hero that romanticises progress drowns unnoticed in the waves of Deep Time.

The two exhibitions, the physical at Andata Ritorno and the virtual at Newart.city inform each other, one a "white cube" that is also nested into its virtual counterpart, a sphere. Exploring through the gallery, passing into the art works, you arrive at inceptive intersections, GIF video, poetry, and text, crossing the timelines and manifestations of this project.
