RoCA Nest 2019 Exhibit Installation Opening at Rockland Center for the Arts

Event description:

RoCA Nest 2019 is a site-specific installation by Cristina Biaggi. During the last twenty years Cristina has created a series of what she calls Human Nests. With these nests, inspired by avian architecture, she presents concepts of interconnection and similarity between the architectural feats of birds and that of some types of human housing found in tropical rain forests. These dwellings are ecologically friendly. When they have ceased being of use, they naturally disintegrate into the environment, providing compost for the continuation of life. By enlarging these avian architectural feats, she hopes to motivate viewers to increase their awareness and admiration of other living things who share our beautiful earth. She employs natural materials- vines and leaves- in a cogent aesthetic fashion to create a harmonious whole. Ms. Biaggi has achieved international recognition for her significant contributions in the field of Goddess-centered art and scholarly studies on the subjects of the Great Goddess, Neolithic and Paleolithic prehistory, and the origin and impact of patriarchy on contemporary life.
