Nü Sensitivity ist ein Versuch, eine neue Vorstellung des erhabenen Bildes oder der Erhabenheit selbst zu entwickeln, nachdem der lange gültige Standpunkt der Romantiker, die Natur sei eine gewaltige, unberührbare, erhabene Kulisse, vor der der Mensch als Subjekt demütig und furchtsam steht, einer Revision unterzogen wurde. Es geht darum, was in unserem Verhältnis zur Natur immer noch eine erhabene Erfahrung ausmacht, und wie diese sich zeigen kann. Shaun Motsi ist ein in Zimbabwe geborener kanadischer Künstler, der in Frankfurt am Main und Berlin arbeitet.
