Tobias Bernstrup, 'South of Heaven', 2014

Tobias Bernstrup’s South of Heaven (2014) is inspired by Caspar David Friedrich’s Friedhof im Schnee, destroyed in 1945. It recreates the painting’s landscape to create a memory from a fictive place and reminds us how man’s dreams of ideal worlds often end in destruction. Home Swiss Home by Eugenio Merino (Madrid, 1975) shows naked truths and unveils uncomfortable situations. The two works compound a satirical reflection on fraud, national interest, the power of money and global inequality. The exhibition functions as an allegation on Spain and Europe’s financial systems.
