A New Idea of Nature
In this issue of ART MAG we make a relationship between art, science and technology. In recent times the visual arts have questioned their own limits using science as one of their main allies. The pieces of
art produced in this context not only imagine new aesthetic possibilities for art but also challenge current political, social, moral or economic values. What are the tools that art must use to open new paths? Some of the pieces we cover in this issue rehearse some answers
We are living in times of drastic changes. How can we approach nature now that we are witnessing more than ever its power?
Our Art Magazine is out now! In issue 26 we are addressing the complexities about nature. As a society, we have been forced to rethink our relationship with the environment we inhabit. There is some hope we finally surrender to the idea that melting with nature is wiser than fighting against. Along these pages we address some of the basic concepts that intersect between art and nature. From a theoretical perspective, you will find an overview of the concept of mimesis and its development so as to understand contemporary debates. We focus also on materials, what do artists produce their work with? Not to leave aside the impact of global warming that also discusses the interview with Nina Fiocco about her film Le Domestique.
Since the very first artistic expressions, art has been involved not only with the depiction of nature but also in exploring the natural environment and its key role in the social, economic, cultural, political and technological contexts of each region. If once art used nature to disseminate an idea whether of beauty or national identity, nowadays artists are still analyzing and questioning the infinite possibilities of nature, especially regarding the technological and biological advances that have taken society to an extreme point of destruction. While Modernism promised a high-level quality of life based on progress, the twentieth-first century has shown the fall of the modernist ideas through nature’s responses to human exploitation. This issue 26 of Art Mag by Sybaris offers a general panorama of how contemporary art is responding to these urgent problems. Maybe art isn’t the only way to stop climate change, the Anthropocene or to modify human relations with nature, but it is a way to face these scenarios from a critical and reflexive point of view.
