Exhibition "Married to the Nature" is a declaration of specific interests espoused by this new institution. We already know that nature is not, and would not be, only a source of inspiration. Today and tomorrow, nature is political, while approach to it defines our identity. Nature becomes a metaphor of social and political changes.

Focus on nature turns out to be the most liberating of all programmatic restrictions. Reprieve which is granted not only by contact with nature, but also by thinking of it, can be the most accessible kind of freedom available, including the domain of art
itself.

In collaboration with Electronic Arts Intermix, The Film -Makers’ Cooperative (NY) and Trapez Gallery.
