Six artists, Rame13, Sea Creative, Mr. Fijodor, Nemo’s, Leonardo Borri and Mìles, were guests at Street Levels Gallery from February 17 to March 17, 2017, to give voice to the dream of an idyll, of a world where nature rebels against the frenetic rhythms of modern society to reclaim the city, like the street artist who, with his practice, claims the right to inhabit public space. “Urban Nature” is the title of the exhibition to which the six artists were invited: Each of them was asked to narrate, through their own personal interpretation, the liberating revenge of nature on the grayness of the urban environment.
The profile of the exhibition is outlined by two narratives: The story of nature, finally free to flourish and expand in the city, is associated with the experience of the street artist who is seeking his own dimension in the urban landscape, opposed to ever larger buildings, billboards, shop windows, and everything else that over time has engulfed nature and its spaces.
“Urban Nature” is therefore a project that aims to make the viewer think, to listen inside himself and to perceive his surroundings. If on the one hand the exhibition is a clear criticism of the arrogance of today’s man, who lives happily in cities that have destroyed the natural world, on the other hand it celebrates the hope of a new feeling spontaneously ignited in the hearts of younger generations, who, today as never before, feel the desire to reconnect with nature and its elements.
