In Uncharted Territories

In Uncharted Territories is the foretelling title of the first institutional solo exhibition by German photographer and artist Tor Seidel in the U.A.E. – even more so as the presented artworks have been specifically produced and are borne out of a feeling of shifting realities in a time of utmost uncertainty. All artworks on display are inspired by the recent and ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic and address how perceptions shift in a time of existential crisis, how our awareness is challenged, certainties get crushed, global patterns of economy and mobility slow down, and social interaction is put to the test. Covid-19 marks a turning point for the global community, having affected each and every single one of us, with a future yet unknown. Tor Seidel takes the viewers on a journey with an open-ended narrative by presenting six new works thoroughly choreographed and spanning many disciplines, such as sound, video, text, photography and installation – showing both the diversity in the artist’s practice and the need for different forms of approach 
to address a phenomenon as complex and unheard of as the recent pandemic.
