Maria Belén Robeda, on her work “Ficción natural”:
“The relationship of the body with nature is constantly intertwined. We fail to identify which is part of the natural world and which of the artificial world, the geometric, pure forms corrupt that natural, organic order and the body inhabits them, but is it that nature has tired of this coexistence, of the artificiality proposed by the human?”
