VÊNUS ET MILÖ, “Riparo” (Shelter)
Green installation (ivy leaves covering on plastic net and metal wire; moss bed, pine trees, strawberry plant), video, soundscape (2012).
Vênus et Milö’s installation is composed of several different elements that altogether hint to the idea of a refuge – a physical and mental space that meets the animal instinct of taking shelter, modeling nature to make it a more comfortable place. It is a natural covering, simple and welcoming, that constitutes, together with its inhabitants, an ecosystem. The microworld it gathers together is a fragile home, the result of an attempt, almost an act of magic, to feel safe from the unknown.
