Marion Borgelt’s latest exhibition is an exploration of duality and the ever-shifting power dynamics of nature and the universe.

It is an encapsulation of the artist’s oeuvre, demonstrating a continued fascination with familiar themes.

The works in this exhibition embody the conflict between man and his environment and the ongoing need to make sense of the workings of the universe.
