foris is the encounter between three artists: Katharina Albers (*1985), Nina Röder (*1983)  und Hirofumi Fujiwara (*1984). The Latin term from which Forst, forest and forêt are derived, describes an outside space, an open counterpart to a structured, molded culture. With different approaches, the artists reflect about the forest as a mythical border to foreign worlds, as well as a metaphor for the complex emotional spheres of the modern individual.

In Katharina Albers´ lithographs and drawings, constantly swaying between abstraction and representativeness, the forest appears as a continuously transforming primal location.

In Nina Röder’s photoseries a little deeper than you thought, landscapes and bodies intertwine. Her works grasp foris as a hybrid area of unspoiled nature outside of civilization. They represent ambiguous states of mind and moods that are always perceptible but never tangible.

Hirofumi Fujiwara’s sculptures create a mysterious parallel existence. Working with clay and plastic, he creates figures that, despite their physical presence, seem to be absent and evoke a certain melancholy.

The three positions grasp foris as a flowing space of its own projections. The outside and inside do not exclude each other but are mutually dependant. One becomes the reflection of the other and vice versa.
