The consciousness of the vulnerability and the finitude of life is one of the prime factors that drives us to transform the nature of the world and the things. We ought to be obsessed by taming the tameless in the almost always vain attempt to achieve perenniality through gestures that extend our existence through the ages.
If there is an amount of pride in the man’s attitude that shapes nature to suit the desire of a rational animal, there is in the same way a kind of trance surrounded by poetics and philosophical becoming.
Thus, rearranging the laws of nature would be a way to clarify a little the astonishment of what is inexplicable for us. Dealing with the immeasurable and the ignorance around the anguish of being alive, we have to design projects that consider a desired transcendence.
Erecting ladders, walls and shelters among nothing, is an attempt to construct personalized monuments. Supplications of the creature demanding the right to be a creator. Andre Nacli, with his keen perception, captures with perfection the contemporary man’s intrigue based on the polarization between being able to domesticate his surroundings and being relentlessly smashed by it in the continuum of nature’s endless time.
Living is, after all, building sandcastles to crumble under the first tide. However, the artist couldn´t solely contemplate this flat and fatalistic discourse. The work that Nacli creates with ease wants to arrive at a more complex plan of codifications under the light of the spirit’s cleverness and accuracy.
Simbiose Sim advances in the debate that puts a magnifying glass on the fissures between culture and nature. By noticing in many ways the moment nature begins to take back the space that had been stolen from it, Nacli brings to his photographs’ surface, at the same time, the force that leads life cycles and the flagrant vulnerability of the being.
A new form of thought can be developed from the well-designed plot of this set of images: it is only possible to transcend and get the desired eternity not by the monuments we have erected, but by the consciousness that the material’s mutation is the engine that drives everything that is organic, everything that breathes and has a pulse. The exuberance of being alive becomes effective with the consciousness that we are also trees, stones, sand, and the inexplicable. Simbiose Sim.
