As Ebbe Stub Wittrup follows in the footsteps of the Danish botanist Nathaniel Wallich, a narrative emerges on Western economy and scientific logic as opposed to local knowledge and experience.
Trained as an architect, Johan Van Mullem is a painter, illustrator and sculptor. His interest in art dates from his childhood, during which he tirelessly drew pictures of faces, a major theme in his work, going beyond portraiture.

A painter of movement and light, Van Mullem works with highly diluted printer’s ink, which he builds up in layers.
