Milan: "Extinct in the Wild" at the Fondazione Prada.

Michael Wang, Ginkgo, Yangjiagou, Dalou Mountains, Chongqing Municipality, China. c’est maintenant février 2017 PLUMEVOYAGE @plumevoyagemagazine © Michael Wang

Imagined by the American artist Michael Wang,

the exhibition unites flora and fauna that are no longer found in nature but persist only in artificial habitats or thanks to the care of man. Described by the term “extinct in the wild”, extinct in nature, these species have been forced to leave nature, entering the chain of human culture. These plants and animals are transplanted into the exhibition and a cultural space. A series of 20 photos, taken by Michael Wang between 2014 and today, portrays these extinct species in the wild and their original habitat where they were living before their extinction.
Until April 9th. Www.fondazioneprada.org
