Society, you’re a crazy breed

IMG_9285Botto&Bruno’s exhibition Society, you’re a crazy breed, in Turin’s Merz Foundation is one large trompe l’oeil. The walls and floors are covered in scenes of society’s perils. Crumbling buildings, piles of trash, abandoned play grounds scatter the deserted landscape. Visitors are invited to walk inside the cinema and watch a movie. However, this is no ordinary movie or video art. These short films are shot through the perspective of children and their interactions with nature, whether that be a falcon or a stray dog. This installation provides a social commentary for the destruction of our planet, and warrants a call to action.
