HABITAT

BRUNO CERASI – 2023

Bruno Cerasi reflects on the concept on anthropocentrism with this artwork, lingering on its contradiction. By recreating a human prison within a natural space, made with locally gathered wood, Cerasi creates an inversion between man and nature. In its presumption of emancipation, mankind won’t notice its inhabiting a prison made of everyday use objects, while animals, truly free from anthropic obbligations, can come closer to obsere human life matters.

The immediacy of the installation pushes us towards interrogating ourselves on our own life’s priorities, throwing us in a dimension in which even the prison itself, usually intended for feral beasts, becomes a metaphor which represents an attitude of mankind which isn’t always respectful towards nature.
