Come With Me- le installazioni di Ellie Davies ci portano nel bosco | Collater.al 1

Ellie Davies is an interesting English photographer of whom we had previously spoken here. Her latest work is called Come With Me and takes us into the fairy woods, to take a ride in the woods, where you can breathe the magic of the ancient British landscapes. Nature has always been interested her in it, in fact, it has worked closely with us for nine years and has not yet tired because it is precisely woods and plants that express its deepest emotions. Ellie states that:

“Our own cultural preoccupations and anxieties obscure the reality of the land, veiling it, and transforming the natural world into an idealization.”

These installations are not exactly reassuring or even sinister: they are simply occasions that the artist offers to the public to rediscover the relationship with nature and a sort of inner connection and fairytale with the mysterious woods.

“These altered landscapes operate on a number of levels: they are a reflection of my personal relationship with the forest, a meditation on universal themes relating to the psyche and call into question the concept of landscapes a social and cultural construct.”

Landscapes, after all, are only what the filter of our mind wants to capture or see, the task of the artist is to bring out what she believes is the true nature of things.
