The artist whose extreme landscapes (radioactive or uninhabitable lands, unusual aquatic phenomena) are his favourite playground, is setting out to conquer new territory: that of the Museum of Modern Art in Bologna. Through photographs, videos and installations, the exhibition All We Ever Wanted Was Everything and Everywhere, running from 9 June to 8 September 2019, reveals a tumultuous relationship between nature and civilisation. The coconuts that grew on land irradiated by nuclear testing on the Marshall Islands (here rendered non-radioactive through the magic of creation) meet the slow and poetic disappearance of a diver under the surface of a chemocline in a cave in Mexico. In this show curated by Lorenzo Balbi, the exploration of infinite spaces and human excesses becomes the cornerstone for reflection on the relationship between humanity and our environment, which we misunderstand even more than we destroy.
