Human power exists in many ways, with no better example of that power 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.
Part of the Bagni di Lucca Art Festival, located in the beautiful region of Tuscany, Italy - the installation will be one of many on show for three months in this village which becomes a playground for sculptors, painters, performers and musicians. Full of activities, concerts and exhibitions hosting great artists from all over the world, it's a place characterised by its connection with nature and a constant cultural activity. For an event called 'Il Ponte in Arte', eight abandoned shops have been renovated on the street of Vittorio Emanuele to transform them into galleries and in one of them Taming The Wild will be on display.
