María Belén Robeda /ARG/
Nature Fiction, 2020
The relationship between the human self and nature is constantly intertwined with María Belén Robeda’s video. Purely geometric shapes disrupt natural forms, the shadow structure is inhabited by the body. Are we still able to determine which part belongs to the natural world and which is artificial?
An abstract and poetic reflection on contradictions, novelties, the human tendency towards appropriating everything that nature creates and implementing it in the human hybrid system, and the inevitability of an identity crisis.
Participation: Andrea Faraco, Belen Lesna
