In his newest series of paintings, Magnus Fisker explores the concept of death and the end of society. The young painter, who is currently finishing his Master’s at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, has a deep and profound interest in nature and how we as human beings treat or indeed mistreat it. According to Fisker, humanity is standing on the edge of the void. Climate change and mass extinction threaten to nullify life as we know it. We live in a time of greed and rampant consumption. To the artist – and to the planet as an autonomous whole – paradise must now be a state of post- apocalyptic balance; an ecological equilibrium that excludes humans from the equation altogether, a perfect state of natural circularity and complex, organic codependency. A world without us.
Magnus Fisker (b. 1992, Ringsted) lives and works in Copenhagen. Currently, his first institutional solo exhibition, With Eyes That Know the Darkness in My Soul, is on view at Politiken’s Forhal, Copenhagen. The Void will be his third solo exhibition with Hans Alf Gallery.
