Herwig Turk

Unfortunately, text is only available in German

The Austrian artist Herwig Turk has been dealing with the exceptional landscape of the Tagliamento for years. The Tagliamento in the upper Italian region of Friuli is one of the very few unregulated rivers in the Alps. It rises at the Mauria Pass near the Austrian border and flows into the Adriatic Sea 170 kilometres further south between Bibione and Lignano Sabbiadoro. The riverbed is characterised by extensive, meandering gravel and sand banks that change dynamically with the water depending on the season.

In his multi-layered work, Herwig Turk presents the river areas as places with different uses, cultural attributions and evaluations. "Anamnese einer Landschaft" is presented comprehensively for the first time at Kunst Haus Wien.
The expansive installation consists of several X-ray light boxes of different sizes, screen printing screens, inscribed glass plates and a four-channel video installation. On these different supports, the artist has mounted his photographic observations of the wild river landscape in a multi-faceted way. Turk documents the geological conditions and changes, such as those caused by the 1976 earthquake, records the economic exploitation of the raw materials gravel and water, follows the traces of warlike conflicts during the First World War and sheds light on the topic of nature conservation using ecological research facilities on site.
