UNION 2018

Tamás Szvet: UNION (2018)
Mosso bamboo, 300x200x20cm
Zhúzihú Yangmingshan; TAIWAN

The project created during the Bamboo Lake Environmental Art Project artist-in-residency program in the Yangmingshan National Park has focused on the view of nature. According to the Gaia hypothesis [1] in microbiology, all living organisms interact with each other on Earth, to form a complex system that helps to maintain the conditions for life on the planet. From this point of view, we have a strong union with nature; therefore we must protect our environment as it is like our own body. In the work a human shape opens, and we can see the mountains of Zhuzihu behind, or rather inside the figure.

[1] formulated by the chemist James Lovelock and co-developed by the microbiologist Lynn Margulis in the 1970s.
