#Eden by Mara Cassiani is a call to experience a mystical pilgrimage, an introspective voyage in which the idolatry of the body and its wellness becomes a ritual and meditative practice. The artist creates a multi-sensorial ecosystem where the luxurious experience of the Spa refers – through the use of ritual objects, motivational quotes and mantras – to the human desire of harmony, hydration and liquefaction of the body.
For the exhibition at Link Cabinet #Eden emulates the aesthetics of a common Spa website, offering a number of meditational instruments. Images, animations, sounds and mantras will be regularly uploaded on the website and will be freely available. Downloading these resources on his personal devices, the audience will enjoy a mystical and truly personal experience.
