Tali Kimelman Exhibition
Museo Zorrilla, Montevideo, Uruguay
Forest Bath is more than a mere photography exhibition, it is a perceptual experience that addresses Tali Kimelman’s work in the Arboretum Lussich forest in an integral way.
Following the artist’s storyline, the Zorrilla Museum room was reimagined as a new multi-sensory immersion space.
Forest Bath is more than simply a photography exhibition, it is a perceptual experience that addresses Tali Kimelman's work in the Arboretum Lussich Forest in an integral way. Following the artist's storyline, the Zorrilla Museum room was reimagined as a new multi-sensory immersion space.
Light is the prime material in a design that aims to use the least amount of resources possible. Hence, the work exhibited is illuminated only through natural light coming from the outside through a series of diffusers to create a unique lighting atmosphere. The surrounding sound is designed by sound artist Marco Colasso which accompanies and completes the work.
“To create this body of work, Tali allowed herself to be embraced by the forest. From that intimate contact, images were born, where the light is shadow, the heat of cool air and sounds become visible. Sharing poet Paul Éluard’s idea that the Earth is blue like an orange, Kimelman presents us with photographs that require interpretation through an integral perceptual act. Walking through this room is walking along a vast process of creation, in which the artist invites us to a careful and delicate interaction with Arboretum, which she decided to call Forest Bath”
