Zaratan is thrilled to present Unknown Network, the latest project by Sanna Gossy produced during her residency in Lisbon.
Developed through different media, the work on display takes the shape of an interactive installation that invites the audience to join a sensory experience in an immersive environment.
The project reflects how plants and trees communicate and get in touch with each other through their underground network of roots, implementing a corporation system that is hidden and magical. By creating and inhabiting an immersive installation, the artist is looking to share a similar sense of connection and community among humans.
The work includes a poetry reading by Eriko Jane Takeno, fellow artist-in-residency at Zaratan. By offering a ritualistic healing experience to the public, Sanna and Eriko wish to share the mutual feeling of connection and cooperation they have experienced through the artistic process.
On the opening day, the two artists will be physically present to activate the installation and guide the audience's participation.
