These pieces, which the visitor can contemplate in the exhibition A Promised Land, from the Age of Enlightenment to the Birth of PhotographyThese pieces, which the visitor can contemplate in the exhibition A Promised Land, from the Age of Enlightenment to the birth of photography, serve the artist as inspiration for the creation of a new flora, a "Flora Industrialis" that questions our approach to reality in a world of technology and various representations.
Following his work process and constant innovation in the use of diverse materials as artistic material, Muniz turns a handful of artificial flowers into a delicate botanical catalog of his invention captured in beautifully crafted photographs.
