diSTRUKTURAFace to Face

 

In its efforts artistic group diSTRUKTURA tries to build on an extended view of nature – as sublime, pseudo or synthetic nature in urban constellations – aiming to define the various relationships, both real and virtual, that create the realities of modern-day life in which art has the significant function of pointing to and defining, without any utilitarian means, the evolving drama around the individual and the society. The main question artists are trying to ask is how long it takes for the changes in the environment to impact the way people think. The Face to Face photographic series (on-going) literally replicates romanticised topographies of the spectator who is directly confronted with sublime and amazing scenes of post-industrial landscapes. This spectator is, in fact, an example of what could be termed a new social and mental ecology. In such a way, motifs of landscapes and cities become the objects of the artists' isolated contemplation, inviting the observer to join. By acting on this and calling for others to participate in their representations of nature and landscape, diSTRUKTURA attempts to point out and re-establish the torn bonds between humankind and nature.
