    Into the Wild – Jan Ernst

    Into the Wild is an original concept of events organized by Galerie Philia that showcases hand-sculpted art design pieces in natural landscapes.
    This physical translation enables the public to admire the design artworks in a novel way by creating a fruitful discrepancy.
    The eyes not only look but apprehend the works creatively in this particular context. Silent resonances hatch and multiply between the artworks and the surrounding nature.
    The idea is to convey a distinct sight of what sculptural design work is and to enrich its plural lectures.

    In this first edition, Jan Ernst’s clay poetic works are shown in the Cederberg region in South Africa and its dramatic beauty.
    Driven by his fascination with natural structures such as corals, fungi, and rock formations, Jan Ernst presents his sculptural artworks in an enigmatic natural environment where marks of ancient human presence fill the walls and our imagination.
