Utopia and Dystopia in Contemporary Landscapes

2019/05/29

The curatorial proposal seeks to put into play the existing tension between the traditional concept of landscapes, meaning the representation of unadulterated nature, and contemporary artistic productions on the same theme. The landscape thus becomes the object of the artist’s critical view, biased so as to draw in the observer and their reality. Using different formats and materialities, landscapes are deconstructed, turned into abstraction, and rebuilt, on the networks. The presence of an urban horizon, the perspective of a situation unassailable for its violence, makes a statement about the use and abuse of our natural surroundings.
