Hilda Hellström spends time in nature, just like many others. The exhibition name ‘I do spend time in Nature’ refers to a shift in our history, where we as humans separated ourselves from nature. If we previously were a part of a nature, that we tried to ‘deal’ with, we are now progressively taming it, and instead ‘visits’ nature for aesthetic purposes. We are in a constant struggle with nature, with an ambivalence before it’s function in our human world. We prefer it calm and cultivated but benefit from it’s resources created during violent processes.
