Art, Myth and Nature

Art, Myth and Nature are the three dimensions in the installations by these artists, in which the natural environment and its singularities are brought to the forefront, as the cultural gaze and its narrative-interpretative constructions emerge. The latency of the end prevails in Markul’s work, becomes a claim in the adjoining voices that utter the word “water” in different languages in the installation by Paes Leme, and turns into an over whelmingly magical spectacle in Nijensohn’s piece. Nature, which is captured in two extreme locations of the South American territory - the Perito Moreno Glacier in the Argentine Patagonia and the Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia - makes a counterpoint to the re-imagined nature of Paes Leme’s intervention. The three spaces are an invitation to a sensory experience and to the reflection upon the relationships between nature and culture.
