DYSTOPIAN LANDSCAPE

Can our society be living in a dystopia?

If we reverse the Darwinian approach, it may happen that what seems to be the apex of civilization is not designed for man, but for animals capable of developing more efficient behaviors than those of human beings.

Cesc Abad‘s work allows us to enter a kind of garden of Eden where each element lives in communion with its environment , and at the same time , makes us reflect on the dangers of technological advances that can mutate parts of an animal body , in a traffic light or a gun.

Perhaps we are facing an involution of the species, where the true outcasts of the planet will be the men and women who observe the desires of the animal species. Perhaps we are facing a new dystopia that allows us to reflect on our role in the world, as a satire of human behavior. Perhaps, Cesc Abad is inventing a world, to talk about ours.
