Pascal Ungerer

Speculative Artefacts (2020-2023)

Pascal Ungerer is an Irish visual artist who specialises in contemporary landscape painting. He describes his work as being grounded in an archaeology of the contemporary past; in a space where he can engage with a specific type of peripheral topography whilst also alluding to uncertain and speculative future landscapes. His fictional and imagined landscapes amalgamate different places and ideas into a metaphorical space to reflect upon wider socio-geographic issues such as post-industrialisation, ecological degradation and the Anthropocene.
