In art history “Natura Morta” describes a painting style that depicts objects, flowers and fruit. The Latin “Natura Morta” translates to “Dead Nature”.
Nina Dillenz’s works converge on the visible clash between the natural and the artificial, one eventually dominating or restricting the other, yet their conflict creates an aesthetical image. “Natura Morta” emulates still lives through photography: Parts of plants appear frozen behind a thin plastic layer, resembling dark oil paintings. Butterfly pupae hatch arranged by human hand, a moth smudges against a windshield as an abstract pattern.
What then lurks behind our perception of beauty?
Are the ideas of equality and equilibrium an unachievable illusion?
Are we capable of discerning the natural from the artificial?
