[CANCELLED] Vernissage: What is nature?

What is nature? presents artworks that reveal the plurality of cultural and personal conceptions of the environment. Through photography, painting, dance, and spatial installations, the artists consider their own relationship with nature from their diverse practices and experiences. Nature becomes both the subject of contemplation and the material foundation of the artworks. Through this engagement between art and nature, the exhibition seeks to dismantle the Western dichotomy between people and the environment. By presenting alternative perspectives to this persistent myth, What is nature? invites viewers to reflect on how they have conceived of the notion of nature in the past, to participate in proposing new ways to represent nature and communicate about environmental issues.
