Description

“With this exhibition, I aim to codify respect for nature and show the simple beauty it holds. Art can have meta-narratives that carries an important and obvious message. Valuing the natural world and respect thereof, is no less important idea than the plethora of gender identity or political issues of late the art viewer has to navigate. I believe that Gregory Bateson’s simple ideas put forward in 1972 is now more topical and important than ever. Bateson argued that man tries to control nature rather than understand the ways we are depended on it. Johann Booyens
