Lori Nix (*1969) and Kathleen Gerber (*1967) are presenting their new joint series ‘Empire’ as an artist duo for the first time at Galerie Klüser 2. As opposed to previous series by Lori Nix, ‛Lost’ and ‛The City’, which have already been shown at Galerie Klüser 2, ‛Empire’ is concerned primarily with the external areas of urban structures and landscapes. The richly-detailed photos show the fall of a modern empire after an inexplicable catastrophe: places empty of people and half-ruined architectures that are slowly reclaimed by nature.
