Elger Esser: 'Morgenland'

  • 28 March — 21 May 2017

Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is delighted to present an exhibition of photographic works by German artist Elger Esser. This exhibition, his first solo show in a public institution in the UK, focuses on a new series of works, entitled Morgenland, created during his travels in the Eastern countries of Lebanon, Egypt and Israel from 2004 to 2015. Nature and the landscape are central themes throughout Elger Esser’s photographic oeuvre. Often in muted, sepia or monochromatic colours, his works have a stillness about them that evokes a sense of the sublime.

This exhibition, curated by Ziba Ardalan, is accompanied by a full programme of educational events aimed at engaging the public.
