Since before Leonardo, Art and Nature Science have been intertwined. As Charles Darwin and contemporary Ornithologist Richard Prum describe, all species have aesthetic agency within their collective and that this “taste for the beautiful” is primarily a female trait. Art Science Exhibits collective brings this feminist evolutionary biology premise into the subtext of Equilibrium.
The question we present is, “How do we find balance within the dramatic shifts caused by pollution, rising waters, and man-made devastation on earth and in the seas?”
After hundreds of years of degradation, by terracing mountains and planting permaculture, humankind can bring back lost environmental systems. Vast, dry river beds can now run wild and wildlife can thrive. Each new tree taking root can breathe sequestered carbon back from the atmosphere in “time”.
Let’s talk about solutions. Large-scale ecosystem reclamation has been tried and tested in Africa, China, and the Middle East. Projects in sustainability build functioning economies, bring food, and improve human life.
Multidisciplinary making is necessary for all the system changes needed for the survival of most species on planet earth, especially for us humans. Individual greed and ingrained patriarchal views can limit us no longer. We are nature kind and by working collectively, we can recreate paradise.
Art Science Exhibits in partnership with the German-Italian Culture Association (ACIT) Venice - official venue for the Venice Biennale.
