The Antinferno – a visible exploration of Martin Eder’s profound reference to magnificence and apocalypse, eternity and purgatory. The exhibition encompasses a model new collection of labor impressed by Dante’s Divine Comedy, the place individuals begin to seek for a solution from the underground. It spans round surreal fantasies and nightmares by means of the strategy of fictionalising and collaging scattered supplies.

“It’s the start of every little thing, the place persons are nonetheless in the identical world nevertheless it’s crumbling. The buildings are broken and modernism has failed. Concrete turns into ugly, home windows begin to fall out. Future was a perception that proved to fail by the passing of time. It’s the time the place individuals begin questioning and looking for solutions. I paint the doorway of hell, not hell itself as a result of it’s an choice, another solution to search
for a solution.” (Eder in dialog with Kwun Sheng, 2020)
Eder makes use of dystopian parts of the mundane, and aesthetics that’s half horror-movie and half glittering seduction to explain a man-made worth. His coded irony discovered its intersection with Neue Sachlichkeit within the resistance to modern tradition and figurative portray, the place chaos and order co-exist. Dichotomy turns into everpresent in his work. The embodiment of weak and powerful turns into balanced in his use of figures: the younger ladies and boys appear susceptible and delicate however stood firmly inside the collapse of the world, unafraid. Martin’s work inform a narrative the place everyone might change into a hero that modifications the world
with their very own power and powers, and alters the realities with using creativeness.
