Great success for the inaugural event of LAND25+5 & NATURAL RECALL joined exhibition, that took place the 16th of July in Moscow.
After the welcome by Maria Troshina from Vkhutemas Gallery, Andreas Kipar and Giovanni Sala (founding partners of LAND Group) presented LAND25+5, while Giulia Comba (founding partner of Studio co.me), introduced the art-communication project NATURAL RECALL.
“At Vkhutemas Gallery we present LAND25+5, an excursus on 25 years of landscape design under the motto “from grey to green”, and NATURAL RECALL, a graphic art communication project based on the “subjective elective affinities”.
At first, trying to communicate at the same time two different approaches to the relationship between the Human Universe and the Natural World (conceptual solid projects Vs graphic paper artworks), may apparentely seem an hazard.
On the contrary, the success and the appreciation of this exhibition testify that a wider view on the relationship between man and nature, enriches both the projects, their own points of view, and their range of possible expressions.
In this perspective, it’s easy to realize that a public park projected including an artistic vision on it, can reveal an emotional impact able to involve the end-users, in the same way art requires a solid planning and research activity to pass on its message and to become a weapon of change.” says Giulia Comba.
