Show URPFLANZE, THE NATURE OF THE IDEA

curator: Alberto Mattia Martinit

Nuova Galleria Morone, Milano

 

   
         
   

The exhibition in Nuova Galleria Morone originates from the crucial principles of the studies by J. W. Goethe which are in the main expressed in the text title The Metamorphosis of Plants published in 1790 treating his reflections regarding the relationship that man establishes with nature. In fact, it was during Goethe's botanical studies that he discovered that inside the infinitive variety and multiplicity of nature there is a unitary and primogenial element. Goethe belived that all plant forms can be derived from a sole plant, an original plant, made up of few, infinitely changeable and duplicable elements.
