Past, future and a compact ungraspable contemporary now appear to be folded into one complex state in Johan Rosenmunthes soloexhibition. Rosenmunthe’s immersive installation takes its starting point at the earliest known pre-historic designs done by Homo Erectus at sea shells found on the Indonesian island of Java.
Solo River is the major river that runs through Java and the exhibition connects the physical location of Java to the digital programming language Java in an installation that takes the form of a combination of Land Art ad high technology.
With a smartphone in hand, visitors as modern archaeologists, can uncover the hidden layers that exist in silkscreens paintings on the walls, "Solo River is the river in which Homo Erectus’s skull was found and recently seashells with zigzag lines - the first man-made sign was found there. Java is associated closely with the origin of man and nature as a primordial soup and melting pot of the species process of becoming.
Today the island is one of the world's most densely populated areas with the hyper modern city Jakarta as the center. " Says Johan Rosenmunthe" - an extreme in material and human development over time."
