Postnaturalia is a complex sculptural installation made by Krištof Kintera, with the collaboration of Richard Wiesner and Rastislav Juhás, for Collezione Maramotti.
Its title speaks for itself: the scenario in which our daily experience is inscribed both as individuals and as a community does not belong to the natural world any longer. Kintera finds his way through the topic of “post-natural” with vivid visual suggestions which he leads with ironic, playful but also bitter spirit within the framework of a complex social and political questioning of our time, moved by the hope of raising awareness on an issue of great relevance today.
The artist’s book is composed of two sections: Herbarium and Cuprum Factum. Through analogy, the first one strikes a dialogue with the new creations of synthetic beauty with historical drawings or etchings, or pages of herbariums with illustrations of plants, many drawn from the naturalistic Collections of the Civic Museums; the second collects texts and images describing the creative process of the works in the studio and those on display in the exhibition.
