CARLOTTA BRUNETTI is an Italian-born, Germany based artist whose work encourages the viewer to experience nature “with fresh eyes” and to reflect on the connections between urban and rural perceptions of the natural world. She uses materials from the site to subtly connect indoor and outdoor, internal and external experience.
Brunetti believes humans are part of nature; they are present in her work with relics like trash and footprints or in cultural associations. Her work is also harmonious with the cultural givens of the region in which tit is created.
My work outdoors or in landscapes is often felt by many people as superfluous. Art within nature seems to contradict nature itself. Nature doesn’t need us is the usual argument. What is mostly forgotten is that we ourselves are part of nature. We will always have a share in nature, also negatively. What is important is that we do not become oblivious to nature’s unspoiled state and that we thematize her destruction by man. Conceptual interventions in natural, cultural and city landscapes is one of my deepest concerns, and showing their human traces in my work another.
