With the point of departure in Marabouparken’s own history and what it can tell us about the ideals and the time in which it was designed, we have chosen works from the collection of Malmö Art Museum in which nature, and that which is considered natural, are the elusive reference points of the beautiful and the normal, as well as of the threatening and the uncontrollable in our lives.

The exhibition Our Inner Nature gathers twelve prominent Nordic artists whose works span the 1880s to the present day. Via nature the works reflect and comment on our civilisation and cultural history in which the concept of nature often starts and ends in our own hands. In an act of circular reasoning we define what is natural, apply it to nature and then refer to our constructed image of nature as proof for, and argument against, the unnatural, the abnormal – that which does not belong.
