Nature Forever traces 50 years of Gilardi’s practice, in which art, criticism and politics are interconnected. Starting from the complex relationship between man and nature, the exhibition investigates the era of consumerism and the use of new technologies. It takes the viewer in a journey through ecology, the relational nature of art, social commitment and politics. The exhibitions is made up of four sections, each showcasing both works and archival material (sketches, texts, vintage photographs, small works) which articulate Gilardi’s process, thinking and poetics.
