03.2019 - Exotic insects are Bernhard Schurian's passion. As mirrors of the diversity of nature, they lie hidden in natural history collections. Bernhard Schurian brings them to light. He leads the observer on a journey of discovery of amazing forms, colours and structures. These are not visible to the naked eye. With the help of special recording techniques, he succeeds in capturing his miniature protagonists even in superhuman dimensions and astonishes the viewer. "Little tormentors" become portraits of great characters. The exhibition at the Alte Handelsschule focuses on large-format insect portraits from the tropics. The Indonesian island of Siberut, which gives the exhibition its name, is home to a small cicada species that only occurs there.

The exhibition "Siberut" displaying insect portraits of Bernhard Schurian will be on Friday, 5th of April 2019 at 7 pm and the show will run till April 17th, 2019 at Ars Avanti in Leipzig.
