Palacio de Zulueta
UNDERWORLD is a spatial installation of luminous forms depicting an imaginary tiny undersea settlement. This art installation, inspire from the very specific marine environment of Smögen, Sweden, has significant engaging commitment with the local community in the preservation of the marine environment. It is made of abandoned fishing nets that have been resting on the bottom of the sea for decades, which get reused to form giant lanterns. UNDERWORLD depicts a dimension of the everyday life of a fictional civilisation, given few recognizable and familiar elements of the human life.
Originally composed soundscape by Leonel Kaplan, which combines sound of sea-life with urban life character, give deeper and life-sparkling dimension to the artwork, and connects a known world with the unknown imaginary world.
