Natural Balance installations in Spain

{Grow Your Own Vegetables by Harmen de Hoop.}

A show with six temporary installations opens this week in Girona, Spain. Coinciding with the annual Temps de Flors Flower Festival, the pieces all deal with natural balance. In addition, there’s a nice website where all of us online can get a good feel for the show.

Here’s a blurb from the show:

The concept of Natural Balance is central to any sustainable system. Creation and destruction are inseparable forces that often function simultaneously. Humans play an increasingly influential role in affecting ecological systems on a local and global scale. Artists, in particular, have an important role to play in transforming human perception and mediating our understanding of the urban landscape. 

Curated by Lluís Sabadell Artiga, Yolanda de Zuloaga and Sam Bower.
