The love of nature, the preservation of our existence.
This is what the Kathleen Vance works talk about.
She is an American sculptor and the author of Traveling Landscapes: mini ecosystems kept in trunks and old leather suitcases.
An idea that has its roots in the memories of the artist, helpless spectator of the change over the years that has transformed the colorful landscapes of Maryland in gray and unifying urban spaces.
A disturbing change that has influenced her entire artistic career, now oriented to the protection and preservation not only of environments and native landscapes but of all those places where progress paves the way to civilization through sweltering concrete casting.
Site-specific works whose materials, extracted from their natural environment, are re-imagined in the form of installation in an experience that aims to raise our awareness towards nature, exorcising the idea that the only way to continue enjoy them is to shut it up in narrow places away from us.
