Conceived as an information and performative conference, the event includes a talk where Alessandro Zannier and his curatorial management are presenting the scientific, artistic, philosophical and divulging relevance of “ENT” project, taking stock of this suggestive operation that provides 6 twinning with some remote places, one per each continent. 

The meeting with the artist and the performance by the Ottodix Ensemble, that will be taking place in presence of the lighting installation “ENT2 Venice/Yaoundé” in front of a limited audience composed of viewers and insiders, are being moderated and translated into English by Francesca Sabatini in the theatre and videorecorded to be distributed by a press release to newspapers and trade magazines, as well as TV channels and thematic websites later on.

The “ENT” project

Alessandro Zannier’s “ENT” project, one of a kind, has intercepted two Venice Biennales of Arts in a row in the last two years. 

After the participation in his double role as visual artist and musician-performer to the Venice Biennale of Architecture 2021 (“Resilient Communities” Pavilion Italy) with “ENT1 – Venice/Auckland” in connection with the twin installation sent to the antipodal Auckland University (NZ), Alessandro Zannier created the second twinning, this one with the African continent, crossing Venice’s environmental data with Cameroun’s ones.

Based on his seventh concept album “Entanglement” subjects (signed under his musical alias”Ottodix”), the project aims at talking some sense on the definitive link between single local phenomena on a global scale, with a cause-and-effect on the whole system.

The entanglements of a forest are vast, complex and mysterious. Today artists seek to understand and express the interconnectedness of trees with all living beings. Members included in the online exhibition and book Embodied Forest will share their diverse artworks and ideas about our human relationship with trees and forests.

Tree Talk is moderated by Sant Khalsa, ecofeminist artist and activist, whose work has focused on critical environmental and societal issues including forests and watersheds for four decades.

Over 300,000 acres have burned in New Mexico over the last two months, in the Spring no less. In this Zoom event we will hear from members who have created data visualizations made during an artist residency, organized a group exhibition titled Forest Fires addressing wildfires in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, see photo documentation from a series titled Following Fire that’s a collaboration between an artist and scientist visually assessing the Holiday Farm Fire in Oregon, and a guest speaker who is an activist presenting an alternative perspective on the current Hermit’s Peak and Calf Canyon Fires in New Mexico. We will also have a selected group of artists present who are addressing wildfires in their work that will participate in the Q&A following.
