Photografic exhibition “The Petunia Carnage”

From 10 May to 27 June 2024 it will be possible to visit Klaus Pichler’s exhibition entitled “The Petunia Carnage” at the Austrian Historical Institute in Rome. It will be closed on May 20th and 30th, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Inspired by an article by Kelly Servick, “How the transgenic petunia carnage of 2017 Begin”, published in ‘Science Magazine’, the project is a photographic story that opens the reflection on what is natural and what is artificial, on what is real or fake, synthetic, or genuine. A dichotomy that involves not only contemporary science, but photography itself since its origins.

Klaus Pichler is a photographer from Vienna, known for his conceptual photo series addressing environmental and cultural issues. His work often blends irony with a critical perspective, addressing issues such as consumerism, waste and the impact of human behavior on the environment. Pichler’s style is characterized by a strong approach to visual storytelling and his ability to transform ordinary, often overlooked subjects into impactful images that stimulate conversations about important topics. He uses a variety of techniques, including macro photography, still life and photojournalism, to create images characterized by rich attention to detail, composition and colour.
