The artists of the Pavilion of Dominican Republic imitate, represent, reinvent nature, in atmospheres that are unusual, suspended between reality and imagination. In their works we observe a desire to communicate with the universe and a multiform life. The contemporary drama that affects this precious land is, in fact, that of a constant threat to the ecosystem and that of a gradual, but progressive, environmental degradation. By expressing both ethical and aesthetic concerns, the artists invite to preserve this delicate balance, with emphasis on the beauty of Nature.
