HABITAT

BRUNO CERASI – 2023

With this work Bruno Cerasi reflects on the concept of atropocentrism, focusing on its contradictions. By recreating a human prison within a natural site, made with locally sourced wood, Cerasi creates an inversion in the relationship between man and nature. In the presumption of his emancipation, man does not realize that he lives in a prison made of everyday objects, while animals, truly free from anthropic obligations, come closer and observe the bustle of human life.

The immediacy of the installation pushes us to question ourselves about the priorities of our lives, catapulting us into a dimension in which even the prison itself, usually intended for dangerous animals, becomes a representative metaphor of a human attitude, not always respectful of comparisons with nature.
