A Note from the Curator
by Alberto Salvadori and Luigi Fassi
Francesco Simeti's work explores the ongoing mutation in the relationship between the human world and the natural environment, creating visual narratives that depict scenarios suspended in a surreal and futuristic dimension, in which nature is destined to question the presence of man and his role of anthropocentric domination.
Unrelenting depicts through a three-dimensional aesthetic an expansive manifestation of the natural plant world, in which flowers, grasses, woodland scenery and other forms of plant life are foregrounded in their unstoppable vital growth, incessantly transmuting into one another. This enveloping and hypnotic vision of the natural kingdom appears oblivious to the human world, highlighting the cadences of an ancestral temporality that transcends that of human existence, leading the latter to recognize its own dimension of ephemeral fragility.
