Naturalized is the project curated by Martina Corbetta. The protagonists are: Elisa Bertaglia, Ryan Contratista, Monia ben Hamouda and Francesca Manetta. During The Others 2014, the idea was to create a project room based on the nature. The Wild Side was the input by the the Fair and Naturalized was the development of this theme.
Paintings, pictures and installations were set in a 15 square meters cubicle to show the different ways to create art. Three techniques, three generations and one theme: nature. Artists were asked to think, consider, meditate and create. The only condition was to make artworks in a positive sense.
This project wants to reach the viewers and convey them into an artificial dimension, similar to the wildest virgin nature with nothing to fear, just the curiosity for a new place that we might as well know already.
The artists present themselves as single individuals in conversation with and within the space. They challenge themselves in full synergy with an intense discussion. The trademark is minimal elegance. Nothing to add, just as in the harmony of nature.
