Title:
An anthropic presumption

Author:
Romina Orazi

Description:
The series “An anthropic presumption” was conceived after the encounter with a group of 19th century negatives. These glass-plates were painted, then scanned, printed and repainted. The landscape around us has been modified over time. In the same way that the geological layers are witnesses that reveal questions about the logic of what we are calling “environmental colonialism”. These images, which are like traces of different exotic environments, question the idea of “progress” as a behaviour of planetary violence, entangled and asymmetrical of old and new forces that move transversely across time and space scales. Global climate crisis is partly a product of the violence of colonialism against peoples, environments, societies and territories.
