Under current forms of governance, our relation to the environment (natural in the first place and urban subsequently) threatens our coming existence, where not only nature has being challenged, but also our primary structures of organisation. In that sense, the way to deal with the current ecological urgency, pass by thinking from our own primary ecosystems outwards. Thus, Deviance Terra reimagines the way we understand and relate to our current human structuring, while it serves as a platform to analyse the crucial role of rurality as part of a wider socio-natural contract.
The exhibition presents contributions by Fernando García Dory, Piero Gilardi and Jennifer Teets & Lorenzo Cirrincione that creatively expand the use and transformation of the land through works that incorporate principles of environmental feedback which reflect about long-term growth and regenerative rhythms. As opposed to ideas of linear evolution, Deviance Terra re-imagines environments (both natural and urban) as the arena where society and nature overlap through exchanges of matter and energy flows.
