Daniel Steegmann Mangrané presents his first major UK solo show at Nottingham Contemporary, with new and existing works.

 

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.

 

Steegmann Mangrané provides a study into how environments can be portrayed, and in doing so, highlights the impossibilities of representation. The exhibition is a call to rethink Western perceptions, forcing us to adjust our understanding of our own nature.
