The photographic work of Bruno Baltzer is at the crossing of the documentation of vanishing worlds and their conceptual processing.
The popular culture where the unconscious collective survives or the family bonds determining the relation to the world are the guiding threads that cross its work.
For him, photography remains before all a way of questioning the world, a fight for existence. Finally by photographing only things that disappear he tents to extract their alleviating meanings.
Together with Leonora Bisagno, they created a freshly new born duo of artists: ultranature. Their work is a combination of different poetics and practices, aiming to the experimentation of media cross-reference within an intimate engagement concerning topics such as nature, nowadays living, as well as social and political questions.  At Tokyo Wonder Site, Leonora Bisagno and Bruno Baltzer will develop their common project ultranature.

About works / performance
Ultranature is an artistic collaboration which aims to the reflection on the concept of relation in itself, expressed though a dichotomic tension. The strain between public and private domains, consciousness' queries towards reality and human projections, strategies of dissimulation as well as unexpected revelations, the coexistence of natural and artificial realities unfold in their practice.
In a flux of images similar to a blog-like artwork, built on a sequence of chapters and in a world in which personal worlds slightly disappear, ultranature blends the lightness of playing and experimenting as well as intimacy with global questions in which media and communication play a relevant role in their work. Analytic processes and an undisguised attitude to revelation intentionally coexist. Ultranature wishes to freely explore complexity.
