Pilar Corrias is pleased to present TopoDendroPhilia, a proposal by Pablo León de la Barra.

The exhibition explores human desires for vegetation and place, and the aesthetic results produced from these encounters. TopoDendroPhilia is less of an exhibition and more like a savage garden, an encounter with the jungle, a tropical greenhouse or the landscape of a park. TopoDendroPhilia confronts what Werner Herzog calls “the obscenity of the jungle” with artistic attempts to represent, understand, or control that which seems to escape rational logic and representation.

The artists featured in the exhibition are:
Leonor Antunes
Stefan Brüggemann
Jean-Pascal Flavien
Adrien Missika
Sophie Nys
Simon Popper
Julia Rometti and Victor Costales
Alejandra Seeber
Daniel Steegmann Mangrané
