Exploring the deteriorating relationship between humans, animals and the environment, Verónica Gerber Bicecci selects a collection of works to demonstrate our history of destruction.

Selected works by writer and visual artist Verónica Gerber Bicecci, the pieces featured in this exhibition are from the ‘la Caixa’ Collection of Contemporary Art, each exploring the effects of human and environmental catastrophe on landscape and language, and the fracturing relationship between humans and animals as a result.

Central to the exhibition is Victoria Civera’s large circular painting of an eye that follows the viewer round the exhibition – that of the infamous Disney fawn, Bambi, whose struggles in the poignant children’s tale are testament to the destructive nature of humans towards nature. And, Concha García’s menacing red forest creeper invades the gallery space as a reminder that all is not well in the environment today.

Featuring the work of artists working across disciplines, In the Eye of Bambi offers a post-apocalyptic narrative prediction of where the planet is headed, also showing pieces by renowned artists such as Blenda y Rosa, Sophie Ristelhueber and Carmen Calvo.
