ARTIFICIAL COCOON by Federica Zianni
Inner tubes and polyurethane foam
It is part of my latest series of artworks on nature, or rather, on the natures of the human being. Paradoxically, one cannot speak of a natural animal but of a cultural animal the human behaviour is not determined by its genetic heritage but by its interaction with others, by social practices and by the environment in which we live, therefore by the acquisition of culture.
The cocoon is made of artificial material and yet it seems to be pregnant and mature to give birth to whatever is inside it. Birth is not tied only to a natural environment but to a technical dimension of the human being, who is the only one who can create realities that are not known yet and to conceive the existence of art.
