German photographer Tor Seidel takes the viewer on a journey to experience an open-ended narrative born out of a sense that realities are shifting in a time of utmost uncertainty
“In Uncharted Territories” is the foretelling title of the first institutional solo exhibition by German photographer and artist Tor Seidel (*1964) in the United Arab Emirates. The artworks were born out of a sense that realities are shifting in a time of utmost uncertainty: the recent, ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic. They address how perceptions shift in a time of existential crisis, how our awareness is challenged, certainties are crushed, global patterns of economy and mobility deaccelerate, and social interaction is put to the test. COVID-19 marks a turning point for the global community, having affected each and every one of us, while the future is still unknown. Thus, Tor Seidel takes the viewer on a journey with an open-ended narrative.
