Human power exists in many ways, there is no better example than that which we exert on gardens, which is literally the taming of nature into ordered, symmetrical and static shapes.
Taming the Wild is an installation that reflects this dialogue between the natural course that leaves follow, and our ability to mould them into the forms that we wish.
It was part of the Bagni di Lucca Art Festival located in the beautifull region of Tuscany, Italy. During three months this village becomes a playground for sculptors, painters, performers and musicians. Full of activities, concerts and exhibitions hosting great artists from all over the world. A place characterized by its connection with nature and a constant cultural activity. For this event Il Ponte in Arte is renovating eight abandoned shops on the street of Vittorio Emanuele to transform them into galleries and in one of them Taming The Wild will be showed.
