A relationship between a creature and the human race.
2012 - 2018
Exhibited at Form/Design Center, Malmö, Sweden 2019
"In the interdisciplinary work Civilization, the Malmö-based artist Maria E Harrysson tells a parallel story to the one where humans are self-proclaimed superior to nature.
A former holy creature becomes a sacrifice for the vanity of mankind. Threats of extinction are not slowing down the exploitation.
A consideration of the liberty we take every day, that lead us towards enviromental and climate change. What are we as humans ready to give up for the sake of a life in balance with nature?
The consumer-critical work Civilization started in 2012 but has been expanded and broadned by the artist over the years."
