hortus doli

€ 2000.00


Starting point is the garden, not as the happy place in the bucolic poetry, or a symbol of divine perfection, but as the manifestation of suffering, a transcendental component of all things. Suffering and death as a natural and necessary state (freed from the whole human idea of sin as it was in Eden), generating an only apparent and constantly evolving harmony. The garden and its pain thus become a symbol of a widespread evil at the universal level. All the objects on the table represent some painful experience in the human life, although we do not notice it.
