2019, Diasec, framed

The series Atopia portrays an extraordinary Romanian salt mine. Due to the high salt content in the air, parts of the mine were converted into a health-promoting leisure park for visitors. In order to make the time underground as enjoyable as possible, games and sports equipment, PC places, religious devotional images and bizarre-looking object arrangements can be found there. Lisa Großkopf shows the rooms depopulated, as absurd stages of human mise-en-scène.
