When the world is left only black and grey is a poetic reflection on human intervention in nature as well as a creative experiment in constructing nature via various forms of human mediation.
The works in the exhibition originate in the artist’s ambivalent relationship with nature, her Entomophobia as well as her fear of being alone in the wild. Yet by putting herself in the position of a distant observer, the artist confronts the land and natural objects that she fears, unearthing uncanny beauty and identifying mysterious patterns along the creative process. In this journey, she found nature is getting more and more like a human invention, an impure construct and myth that is increasingly becoming a sort of a complex hybrid. Even in the seemingly most untouched parts of the world, traces of human interference or presence can be found.
In a highly technological and globalised world, a new form of “natural” beauty is being created through heavy human involvement. Not only do we destroy “nature” but at the same time we also let it grow in ways that are not supposed to be. This unexpected, artificial change creates a kind of unnatural nature. This unnatural nature creates changes in such a rapid speed and exhibits emergent behaviours that we can no longer easily foresee its consequences, hazards as well as beauty.
