APPARENT PARADOX Is a mixed media open air installation realized with natural elements collected into the forest of Acquerino and restituted to the woods to create micro-shelters for the ecosystems populating the undergrowth.
The installing process started in early June with the wood elements and has been completed with the clay habitats set within the pine forest during the last week of July.
