As Ebbe Stub Wittrup follows in the footsteps of the Danish botanist Nathaniel Wallich, a narrative emerges on Western economy and scientific logic as opposed to local knowledge and experience.
Federica Landi (1986) is a practicing artist working mainly with photography, professor at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome and co-founder of Riu, an independent space dedicated to research in the visual art field. From the beginning Federica has perceived photography in a perspective of construction, using it as a visual language for spatial investigations. A pivotal element of her research is the relationship between the human presence and his environment as a place shaped by technology. The investigated space is the one created by man himself, from the simple act of seeing to the production of sophisticated devices. Perception is thus no longer conceived as a static system, but it comes into active play when activated by cultural and technological inputs which leave an inevitable human mark onto the world.
