The Chocolate Factory Foundation, a historic culture center that once operated as a chocolate producing factory, reopens with an inaugurate installation by duo Daniel Gonzalez, and SBG artist, Anna Galtarossa.
¨ Anna will realize in a room of the Foundation a world unto itself, a dream-like ecosystem inspired by a trip she made in Kamchatka, a country situated in the extreme east of Siberia bordering the Bering Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the sea Okhostk. It is an area characterized by the presence of 160 volcanoes, 30 of which are still active, by high-altitude lakes, snow-capped peaks, plumes geyser of black lava and unspoiled tundra. Kamchatka '16 (continuation and completion of a project by the artist presented to Viafarini in 2005) is the title of the work that presents textures in an armchair traveling on a rail in a reality created as a result of a review process and metabolizzamento of their experience, thanks to a phase of influence and alliance between two stages of reflection, a place on the trip and one at the arrival base. Everything is unreal, flipped and fantastic, animals-monsters, to plastic volcanoes, the intermittent lights.¨
