THE LOST WORLD

Lost, not seen, not experienced but still perceptible – time heals no wounds even if we desire it so much.
The world we have seemingly lost- is not a world we would love. The by us believed “Lost World” becomes still apparent in a frightening way.
The resentments that manifested itself during World War II, still exist.
The pollution of the earth is a burden we cannot handle. The destruction of the cultural values we watch impassively.
Nothing is changed, altered, settled, the past is not accounted.
Do we truly mourn “the lost world”?
Shouldn’t we mourn the loss of the present?
(Elisabeth Rass, 2016)

The question whether the past was really that rosy as represented always by the generations, is followed up by both artists.

The British graphic artist, designer and multimedia artist Robert Richardson represents the deliberate disappearance through wordplay and graphical resolution.
The Austrian photo artist Elisabeth Rass presents a photographic ancestral hall of the „LOST WORLD”.

Both artists confine themselves in this project to the recent past of the earth and the most significant changes of the ecological, economic and global political status.
