Reflections on Nature - Atousa Bandeh, Matea Bakula, Joseph Semah

26 January - 23 February at Lumen Travo Gallery
Atousa Bandeh, Matea Bakula and Joseph Semah

Our very first show of 2019 will feature the works of three artists of the gallery: Atousa Bandeh, Matea Bakula and Joseph Semah.
This group show deals with what we consider an urgency that is worth to be addressed in this early part of the year, with the hope it will raise the right awareness in our audience: as the title suggests, all the artworks presented in the exhibition relay on the binomial controversy between natural and artificial, in order to analyze the presence of Nature in such a man-centered world.
 
The arisen reflections also lead to a necessary confrontation with the role of animals and their involvement in contemporary society: through Bakula’s beeswax sculptures, through Bandeh’s large canvas where plastic bags become the main protagonists of this weirdly aesthetic composition, and through Semah’s bronze rabbit lying on the floor, we would like to begin a provocative visual conversation over Nature, to help raise awareness towards the present and the future history of the world we are living in, while also growing a substantial understanding on the importance of animals and natural sources and materials.
