Michele Guido, ceiba garden project 2007/2018
June 15 - October 20
Ceiba, a plant which was considered sacred by the Pre-Columbian Civilizations, was represented as a symbolic axis whose roots and canopy connected the earth, sky and the afterlife. Ceiba Garden Project 2007/2018 consists of macrophotography taken of Ceiba Speciosa, imported from South America in 1896 for the Botanical Gardens of Palermo, relating the geometric structure of its thorns to the Mexican Mesoamerican architecture and to Leon Battista Alberti’s theory of the relation of harmonious parts.
