Giorgia Severi at MUSE in Trento

adamello web

Giorgia Severi is among the twenty Italian and international artists present in the show Tree Time, which will be open from 30 October 2020 until 30 May 2021 at MUSE, Trento.

Derived from an idea and exhibition project of the Museo Nazionale della Montagna, Turin, and curated by Andrea Lerda and Daniela Berta, the show gives a voice to the languages of art for a new vision, management, and care for trees, woods, and forests, by relating scientific and artistic research.

Trees are our greatest allies for the maintenance of the planet’s climactic and atmospheric balance, covering as they do almost 30% of the earth’s surface, and many form complex and fascinating ecosystems: forests. The deterioration of the condition of forests is also inevitably reflected of the quality of our life, every day exposing us to conditions that are more insecure and unpredictable. As an answer, there is emerging a new awareness of the impact that human interference has on natural ecosystems and the urgent need to build forms of coexistence sustainable for future times.

Giorgia Severi’s work “can’t see the forest for the trees” starts from the Vaia storm to look from above at what is happening to the ecosystem of planet Earth, but even more it is a magnifying glass on the ecosystem of Italy. A journey from above in order to speak of biodiversity and contaminated landscapes, as well as the problems linked to the overheating and pollution of the earth. In fact the Vaia storm was one of the many climatic catastrophes of the last decades that make clear the fact that our country is heading towards tropicalization. The title is inspired by a typical British expression “I can’t see the forest for the trees”, used when there is not a clear vision of a situation because too much attention is given to small details and the whole cannot be seen, as in a forest where all the single elements are interrelated. In fact, by starting from the Vaia storm, the work deals with current environmental problems that are all linked due to causes and consequences of various kinds: geological, climatic, and anthropic.
