The series MUSEUM HIGHLIGHTS including this work can be seen as the ecological warning and statement of the Italian meta-photographer Aqua Aura. Mixing different technologies and mediums, Aqua Aura creates a series of containers reminding us of some of the contemporary art spaces and museum born out the renovation of industrial archeological sites. By revealing Nature as being the content of these “museums”, or “collectors warehouses”, the statement as much as the warning comes out loud and clear: Nature should be celebrated as the Supreme Artist, but if we keep being so carefree toward it, we can expect Museums will be the only places future humans will be able to see some. From this the inevitable questions: what are we without the rest of nature? If we keep failing to integrate with our environment, what future awaits us? In Aqua Aura’s Museum Highlights the only signs of humanity are the spaces, but of humans there are no traces. Not a molecule, not a virus left behind, which you could find in his previous series The Craft and Scintillation. This time the Italian artist is giving us the possible result of our own folly, and no signs of the survival of our species. Time to reflect.
