Lori Nix (born 1969) is a storyteller par excellence. In her photographs she whisks the viewer off to fictive places such as a museum, library, launderette or shopping mall, which bear testimony to the past existence of human beings on this earth and the achievements of their civilisations. With her photographs, whose motifs are based on small-scale dioramas that she constructs herself, the artist threatens to topple our anthropocentric view of the world. Human control centres and public places are reduced to absurdity. Nature alone remains, the last bastion of life.
