Gloria Ceballos: Nature a Cultural Artefact
This exhibition focuses on Gloria Ceballos’s continuing study into our relationship with nature.
As city inhabitants our experiences of nature are restricted to parks, gardens and other green areas: “cultured nature”. We call green spaces a natural environment, when in reality they are spaces controlled by man. In our aim to control everything, nature is classified, organised, designed, and theorised. The focus of Ceballos’s latest series of work is the concept of “three natures” , a concept created by Cicero and later developed by landscape theorist John Dixon Hunt.
