The exhibition Humanité végétale tells the tale of a 10-year journey around the world by Swiss photographer Mario Del Curto through his photos, combining visual art and political activism. Del Curto invites us to reflect upon our relationship to nature and the potential development of a “soilless humanity”. Among his destinations, he has visited the massive wild apple forests of Kazakhstan (endangered today), the urban gardens of several megacities, the eccentric Monster Park in Bomarzo, and many unique or modest gardens throughout the world. In strong and symbolic images, gardens reveal themselves here in all their dimensions – in terms of food, science, decoration, art and politics.
