The artificial human being produced the artificial world. Nothing is natural any longer, I said. We start from the premise that everything is natural but that's a fallacy. Everything is artificial, everything is artifice. Nature no longer exists. We always start from the contemplation of nature, when for ages we should have been starting from the contemplation of artifice.
That's why everything's so chaotic. So false. So desperately confused. Where there's no nature there can be no contemplation of nature.

The exhibition’s title, Grotto, alludes to three large-format pastels depicting caves. From Renaissance paintings of hermits through to Courbet’s The Source of the Loue and, more specifically, The Grotto of Manacor (c. 1901) by the Belgian painter William Degouve de Nuncques, depictions of underground caverns conjure up a wealth of historical and philosophical connotations.
