For the installation Can we go in a new direction?, the artist combines the themes that have long characterised her work, linking cultural, historical and economic relations to nature in its Western tradition. In Gabriela Albergaria’s work, these relations are expressed and explored by reflecting on the garden and landscape (as natural spaces that have been designed, built and are managed) and on the acclimatisation/displacement of plants as a symbol of intensive, extractivist practices in the broader context of the colonial project (colonisation of nature).
