Using sculpture, painting, photography and installations, the exhibition proposes a multi-faceted narrative in which deconstructed or imaginary nature sits side by side with bodies displayed or recounted, but in which strong political statements also dialogue with intimate and personal stories of cultural identity, all of them demands that share a commitment focusing on change for a transformation of our way of looking, speaking and acting in the world. Calling into question the patriarchy, gender roles, the antagonism between nature and the human being, restrictive roles and power relationships, the exhibition builds alternative futures, proposing forms of relationship that are still in the process of being thrashed out.
