    Through a new immersive installation, architectural interventions, a 16mm film and a virtual reality work, the Rio-based Catalan artist looks at how diverse mediums and technologies can represent aspects of the Mata Atlântica.

     

    Mata Atlântica, a rainforest stretching along the Atlantic coast of Brazil, is one of the most important biodiverse areas on Earth, yet is highly endangered, with only 7% of its original surface left. Steegmann Mangrané looks at how this complex environment has been subjected to conflicting pressures: economic, ecological, geographic, scientific, historical and territorial.
