PALM SPRINGS UNSEEN

Erwin Olaf
19 September - 19 October, 2019

After solo shows at Kunstmuseum Den Haag, Fotomuseum Den Haag and Rijksmuseum, Olaf will focus in his gallery about his most recent series Palm Springs, the third episode of his extraordinary trilogy that started with Berlin and Shanghai. As multimedia artworks, Palm Springs includes photographic works, carbon prints and a series of video-portraits, exhibited for the first time worldwide. The series includes Olaf's concerns and biographical elements. The multimedia artworks depict Southern California, eternalised by painters such as David Hockney as a mid-century paradise. In Olaf’s version, the view is not so idealised. Complicated and with a more introspective character than ever before, Olaf shows the growing difficulties we face trying to adapt to the globalised world.
