Selva Obscura is a collective exhibition in Milan, which presents 19 artists who exploit very different medias and languages, but are joined together by the central importance of Nature as a mother.
Forests provide a reservoir of oxygen, water and life, but are quickly disappearing. In the last 100 years, many forests of the planet have lost close to 90% of their habitat. This descendant spiral seems to leave indifferent a great part of the world’s population, who will soon be living in a real hell-pit: society as we know it, cannot survive in a habitat overwhelmed by rubbish.
Dealing with this plight are a bunch of artists spearheading the new neopantheism movement, a new mythology that blends last century pop culture, classic inspiration and alchemical animism.
Some of the artists featured are Chris Berens, Lisa Black, Daniel Martin Diaz, Tessa Farmer, etc.
