Dacia Manto’s work transfers her observation of nature and the landscape onto a level of formal research, using a dual approach combining science (via the re-elaboration of technical data) and the senses. Manto’s installations are thus the product of the union of the objective analysis of reality and the intimate reworking of it, in an attempt to achieve deep understanding of the elements that compose it. As in the case of her installations, the drawings also prefigure free development in physical space unconditioned by nature, for the lines are assimilated by the vegetation and vice versa.
