Exhibit deals with relationship between nature and technology

Istanbul Modern welcomed a new exhibition on Friday addressing the relationship between art, nature and technology. The exhibition, titled “Paradise Lost,” consists of digital media and video works. Included in the show are 21 artists and a joint project who take into consideration subjects related to nature and examine the impact of industry and technology on the environment.


The title of the exhibition is from John Milton’s poem about Adam and Eve’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden and the stigma of original sin. The common point in the works in the exhibition is “the sense of loss of primal innocence, and the feeling that nature is at odds with civilization.”

These days, when we confront the consequences of the earthquake and nuclear disaster in Japan, “Paradise Lost” invites people to ponder the future through the visual arts.
