Terra Cognita - Untamed

Sonja Braas

The Quiet of Dissolution (2005-2010)

The phenomenon of a natural disaster can not be viewed apart from the presence of people. The destructive forces inherent in nature are essential for the development and evolution of the landscape, while man has a vital interest in controlling nature and bending it to his will. The images of THE QUIET OF DISSOLUTION, staged by Braas in her studio, deal with this contradiction, placing culture and order over against nature and chaos.
