East Wing presents Copenhagen based Sara Galbiati, Peter Helles Eriksen and Tobia Selnaeas Markussen and their otherworldly installation PHENOMENA at the Greasewood Gallery / the Hotel Paisano during the Marfa Film Festival.

What lies behind UFO phenomena? Is it a commercially profitable story, a mass delusion with social consequen­ces, a religious myth or a true physical phenomenon?

Undertaking an investigative journey through the states of Nevada, New Mexico, and Arizona, this Copenhagen based artist collective, utilizes an anthropological appro­ach combining photography and extensive research as a way of examining the modern myth of ETs and UFOs.

”Phenomena” documents an alternative system of be­lief, where neither God nor mankind is at the center of the universe, and it strives to achieve an understanding of humanity’s eternal search for substance, countered by the existential fear of meaninglessness.

By collecting as much data as possible, while maintai­ning a non-judgmental attitude towards their informants they encourage others to take a critical, but open minded view of their discoveries, because the complexity of the subject and constant flow of changing information mean that the pieces can be combined in infinite ways.

Some of the stories are contradictory; some might not even be true. The work may feel at times like fiction, but it is entirely based on reality.
