CONCRETE JUNGLE - Video Report
"A jungle of cement, real and...concrete.
An oxymoron meant to evoke the universe of urban contradictions. The metropolis, a space in which man loses his identity and finds it a new under other forms and combinations - and its opposite, the jungle, symbol of a disquieting, uncontaminated reality. Just like natural ecosystems, urban environments too are complex biological organisms, regulated by cycles in the air, water, and soil - urban ecosystems, where man interacts with the constituent parts and establishes diverse relations of varying complexity."
Project “Concrete Jungle”, a Studio TAAG concept born from these connections and dualisms, took place from April 8th to 13th at Ese House, in Via Tortona, Milan.
An art show, a temporary shop and a series of Urban Culture events were presented.
Each attending artist has developed a personal visual imagery with which to comment on and describe the city, in the course of a common effort to depict its instinctive and animalesque dimension.
