Second Nature, 2023



The video addresses the relationship between capitalism and religion. Alongside the expansion of capitalist frontiers through the planet, a myth of origin was exported. The religious idea of the Garden, as a place separate place from humanity, and passive to be appropriated, extracted, commodified was mobilised to serve the colonial and imperialists interests. “Second Nature” critically departs from that myth of origin and propose other forms of relation. The video reflects on the social, political, economic and environmental implications of this foundational myth, and, at the same time, tries to imagine forms of regeneration based on interdependency and camaraderie between humans, non-humans.
