Dancing Elephant Projects

The planet collects bits and pieces of life. Each organism, plant and person leaves a vestige of what once was their existence and often, a new beginning for something or someone else. Biodiversity builds that possibility by giving energy to every corner of the earth; it nurtures, adorns and produces a large ecosystem of plants, rivers, animals and roots that are responsible for keeping the circle of life alive.
Dancing Elephant Projects' first exhibit, Florilegio, is like the earth, a collection: an anthology of works of art and perspectives about the world that focus on biodiversity. A pack of animals, plants, sceneries, and critical sensibilities that have crossed local and foreign borders to lay down their path, hoping that beauty, abstraction, and reality mean the beginning of a personal consciousness towards the biological greatness of the planet and the importance of being part of positive change.
The selection of artists that we have gathered for Florilegio have, aside from a leveled talent, a very personal vision on the relation between mankind and the rest of nature; a relation that evokes images and diverse creative constructions that make the exhibit a small festival of commitments and figurations, says Lina Rojas, co-director of DEP.www.dancingelephantprojects.com/en/proac
