Back to Our Roots
In a captivating note, “NOTES ON HOME: THE WILD” our esteemed curator for Larnaca Biennale 2023, Yev Kravt, reflects on our connection with nature. The note calls us to re-evaluate our conception of ‘home’ by shifting the foreground to our natural environment, our primal home, challenging the dominant modern Western perception that relegates nature to a mere backdrop. This profound reflection sets the tone for this year’s Biennale and invites us all to explore our origins and interdependencies. Read the full note here.
