The depiction of nature is the investigation of “Naturel pas Naturel”, group show that starts next Monday, February 19th, at Palais Fesch – musée des Beaux-Arts. The exhibition brings together ancient and contemporary artworks to examine human behavior through its interaction and interpretation of nature.
Still life from the XVIII century and traditional landscape paintings are in display alongside with Picasso’s works that mix human figures with animals, Richard Long’s conceptual work and recent production of artists such as Sara Ramo. In “Naturel pas Naturel”, nature is explored in its mystic and physical dimensions, represented as a divine and harmonic space, as violence, as ilusion and as a proof of resistance to time.
All these different approaches towards nature offer multiple points of view on how man relates to it and how the historical context alters human understanding – and, therefore, depiction – of nature.
