Bella Fortuna
— is a solo exhibition centered around the release of the mash-up magazine Bella Fortuna Magazine 

In the exhibition, loose snapshots are set up next to personal and, at times, total-dissolvements of photographed landscapes. The exhibition can be seen as a minor pause in a longer study of: what constitutes a linguistic or poetic landscape vs. a physical landscape? And, is it possible for landscape photography and abstraction to have a political dimension today and a real transformative potential?

The work the exhibition takes as its starting point is the mash-up publication Bella Fortuna. This imitation of a magazine deals with topics such as the flow of news streams through your everyday life, and how they stay and take up space in your head. The magazine has collected and processed some of the forecasts that are made for the future, whether they define natural policy upheavals or tomorrow's weather forecast. The exhibition touches on how humans adapt to changing conditions and how, through an empathic approach to meteorology and landscape, one can relate to and visit other ecosystems across the globe. The world wants to see itself, writes the author Inger Christensen. A global desire to take a step back and reflect on oneself and one's surroundings.

The title of the exhibition means ‘good luck’ and is a reminder to all of us that luck –and perhaps a touch of solidarity­– is needed from all of us to face the coming forecasts for a future that is constantly getting one step closer.
