SYNOPSIS

„Nature Morte” is a collection of elegies that allow us not so much as to work through loss, but to become aware of what is brought with the awareness of non-existence and absence. Perhaps the world we know is beginning to fall into oblivion, but the creation of a new order – social, institutional, artistic – will be difficult to achieve if we do not know who and what to say goodbye to.

 

During the pandemic times, many ideas and beliefs about art get destroyed. However, some of them may become stronger
– like the conviction that art is used by us to create bonds and alliances, networks of understanding and support. Joseph Beuys – an activist and a rebellious artist, a relentless spokesperson for the concern of the natural environment
– is a starting point for a journey through these areas of art, that are suspected to have therapeutical properties. Perhaps, a time has come, to try to disrupt the old divisions between art and society, art and not-art, art and nature. Perhaps art can help us to replace our past habits with a lack thereof, as well as, an openness to change.
