In the exhibition "Natural Appearance" by Maria Jauregui Ponte and Aitor Ortiz, Galerie Springer Berlin presents two series that were created independently of each other, but are dedicated to the same theme, the appearance of nature.

In the series "Where fox and rabbit" the pictures show a small place in Mecklenburg. The cycle is about wild animals that share their living space with people. During the day they live secluded and at a distance with the people. As soon as it gets dark and the inhabitants have retreated into their homes, the wildlife conquers the terrain. Maria Jauregui Ponte makes this reconquest visible with the help of a wildlife camera.

During the day, the artist uses the camera to search for the traces left by the animals during the night; in an environment characterized by industrial agriculture that only seems to represent nature. Ortiz photographs the large formations of starling flocks on the Basque Atlantic coast. Isolated from their natural background, they form dark patches on blank canvases.

These structures or clusters are coordinated by hundreds or thousands of beings together. They organize an agile unpredictable choreography in which the individual bird disappears. Aitor Ortiz captures this natural wonder with his camera and alienates them with technical finesse.

Maria Jauregui Ponte and Aitor Ortiz are from the Spanish Basque Country; Ortiz lives near Bilbao, Jauregui Ponte in Berlin and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Vernissage: 16th of October 2021, 12pm – 18pm Uhr, Springer Galerie Berlin
