In his works, Paul Kolling deals with current issues of economy, ecology, and the development of complex infrastructures over the past centuries. By using technical and digital systems, he creates installations, sculptures, videos, and hybrid works that move between analog and digital space. For his solo exhibition Nadir at Kunstverein München, Kolling presents a new film production that examines the history of the early aerial photography and the Hansa Luftbild GmbH. The development of aerial photography almost 100 years ago led to drastic change in perspective on the environment and human positioning within it. Kolling employs an expansive installation in order to trace this very change in perspective from the horizontal to the vertical and the resulting perception of space, image, and self.
