The represented artists work with different concepts and materials. Their works are results of different processes, in one way or another dealing with nature. A few of the works are documenting, some romanticizing and others deceive the viewer’s eye. Some materials are refined and others left raw. Some explore the idea of nature in contrast to a civilized, cultured world – and others are more direct confrontations. With these works, Woodpecker Projects hope to share and investigate questions dealing with our (the contemporary human’s) relation to nature and its expressions.

Terra Incognita is a term used in cartography for regions that have not yet been mapped or documented. It is also the title of Jens Henricson’s contribution to the exhibition, which depicts a kidney cancer cell magnified 180 times. A work that is reminiscent of how similar the microscopic sometimes is to the macroscopic.
