The exhibition Expanded Nature sets to creatively explore our increasingly broader ties with nature, from a contemporary point of view, noting the landscape’s and surrounding medium’s evolution, analyzing our fears related to the destruction of the environment, to the climate changes, and to natural disasters caused by human interventions. Exploiting natural resources up to the extinction of life, impoverishes the earth, and often leads to the extinction of some species of wildlife. In our relationship with nature – from the perspective of the devastating effects provoked by mankind – one could also mention the alteration of the social climate, due to polarizations of all kinds, and due to the political and economic upheaval, which generated and would continue to generate the phenomenon we call migration.

The Edge Effect is a term inspired by a biological concept predominantly used in ecology, and it defines various changes and effects upon plants and animals, occurring when a certain kind of habitat coexists with another. Through this effect one can examine the social construct that reveals the relationships amongst individuals, or between communities and nature. The loss of our ties with nature is often signaled by the artists who wish to impose and consolidate an ecological awareness, based on the idea that the world is an interconnected network.

Expanded Nature proposes an open approach towards a multitude of themes, achieved through classical means (paintings, objects, photos), or through new media, such as installations, environments, videos, and performances, etc. (Ileana Pintilie)
