Unnatural Exhibit at Bass Museum of Art- until November 4, 2012

UNNATURAL will present scientific, romantic, conceptual, poetic, sensual and ecological conceptions of nature through a variety of strategies that reflect advances in technology in the twenty-first century. The works in the exhibition question conventional means and methods of representing the natural world and metaphorically embody both the paradoxical longing to fuse with nature and the threat embedded in such fusion. The works in UNNATURAL thus reflect a cultivated, synthetic, manipulated nature, which includes allusions to science as manifestations of a reality oscillating between the real and imaginary.

UNNATURAL represents the far-fetched fusion of reality, fantasy and simulation. At the same time, it reflects the freedom of the imagination and the wonders of simulation technology, which make the inconceivable conceivable. It reveals how the unmediated sense of awe and wonder provoked by nature has been replaced by the work of art, which enables us to marvel at the act of representation and to re-imagine nature, while celebrating the wonders of the human imagination.
The location of this project in Miami Beach—a subtropical, botanically lush barrier island that was built on a filled coral reef,  where even the beach sand was artificially imported—further strengthens the tangible relationship between the “natural” and the “unnatural”.
