The exhibition is part of a wider program of 12 shows called B#SIDE WAR VOL. II, that reflects on the 1st World War, investigating the connections with our everyday life.
Technology and nature are polarized, in the context of war, and they represent the cruelty and the beauty, the nonsense and the sublime, life and death.
The symbol of natural elements is emphasised in a kind of prophetic way, bringing to light the protagonism of the organic soil, which is symbolised as a protective and survival element, but also of concealment and suffocation. In the exhibition, the elements of duplication and multiplication highlight the bad feeling of mass production, representing its inhuman side. Through the inclusion of historical elements, the exhibition comes to insinuate a doubt about the role of nature in the conflict, carrying on the parable of the technology that returns to nature, although in the form of deception.
