Neubad, Bireggstrasse Luzern
This works is about the the look that mankind has towards nature and everything concerning their relationship, where there’s a direct connection that often it’s not completed by knowledge and comprehension.
This cultural attitude brings a distance and the distance creates a lack of empathy that can be easily turned, or purpose or not, in blindness. In a society where the profit is the main value, this relationship is then based on exploitation and privatization of natural resources, and all the consequences are hidden also if they’re in front of everyone’s eyes.
As in the previous paintings, the structure of the building became an important element for the definition of the composition: from this comes the idea of something that’s inside, partially hidden and / or protected. The subject is then into the structure and not outside, is a sort of cage made again by the human gesture of opening and closing, looking or hiding.
