Find inspiration in the work of Edvard Munch!
The Scream from Nature is an eco art project which aims to raise consciousness about the relationship between humans and nature. The project is a contemporary interpretation of Munch’s masterpiece the Scream, in which the iconic anxiety-ridden face is recreated outdoors in nature, with a variety of materials.
Munch wrote several texts about the Scream motif, the most poignant among these being: “I felt a huge unending scream course through nature”. Now, over 100 years later, we hear another ”scream” from nature: droughts, forest fires, floods, earth slides, extreme weather, melting glaciers, rising ocean levels and mass-extinction of animal and plant species are just some of the challenges the world faces today.
Find inspiration not only in the Scream, but in the broad oeuvre of Edvard Munch and how he treats nature in his work
