The Anticipation of Rain
Naima Karim — Saudi ArabiaBangladeshThe NetherlandsUnited KingdomGermanySwitzerlandIreland — 2022 — 7’
Bangladeshi artist Naima Karim was paralyzed by a virus and for a year could do nothing but look at the sky. She then experienced the monsoon even more intensely than usual. For the three-dimensional VR experience The Anticipation of Rain, Karim painted a landscape along a boundary of coastal forest and beach, where this meteorological spectacle takes place at an accelerated pace. A rich sound design and two specially designed scents complete the experience.
Entrance to the exhibition is free. Booking on the LINK.
