You are warmly welcome.
Minna Kangasmaa’s most recent series of works Systema naturae brings under scrutiny interactions between human, society and nature, but also at the same time creates a wider network of referrals. By using conceptual tools to describe the sometimes contradictory relation of human and nature, Kangasmaa leads with small gestures to large and complex questions of art history and philosophy. Through clarifying, structuring and re-evaluating concepts and aspects related to the human relationship with nature the series of works deals with art's ability to describe the human relationship with nature truthfully. Concurrently with the above-mentioned the main subjects of the Systema naturae series is to comment on originality and authenticity associated with a work of art.
