Title:
Inverted kingdoms

Author:
BarbaraNati

Description:
Towering pillars of vegetation rise to the sky;tangled trunks,branches,creepers and lianas intertwine creating horizontal clusters. Concrete islands grow in the middle of an endless grassland that overlays the ground.The kingdoms have reversed, plants replace engineering work, trees create flyovers and bridges, meadows shape roads and roundabouts. By building majestic compositions Barbara Nati draws the viewer’s attention with a direct focus, using very simple visual contrasts: The tragic inequality between the overflowing manmade structures made of concrete and steel versus the lonesome elements dedicated to nature. This body of work is a stark portrait of the infringement of present times whilst outlining a new enhanced perspective for the future. Every genre of artists has a different audience and to mobilise all of them on a platform like this creates noise and buzz which is what helps in getting proposals across to the lawmakers. In the last ten years I have been investigating alternative visions regarding humankind’s place on earth through my entire production.
Most humans, as a matter of fact, have lost the human–nature symbiotic connection and this is commonly believed to be a result of the effects of industrialised culture Media art accelerates the process through which culture has already been recognised as the necessary infrastructure to manage the increasing complexity of our planet.
