Hyper Natura is the first solo exhibition by Luna Bengoechea at Lucía Mendoza Gallery.
Luna seeks references in the classics of art history, from which she contextualizes the relationship of human being with food and nature – especially the genre of still life or botanical illustrations.
Her work means a review of the established food system, its rules and its techniques and even the agents involved. Transgenic foods, trade, new models of colonization.
Hyper Natura is a journey through the topics that Luna Bengoechea investigates, with the intention of being more aware of what we are doing with the nature that surrounds us. She questions the current food system and the contradictions of the market. She emphasizes the problems generated by global and intensive production, causing serious environmental impacts.
