ILMAPUU (WORLD TREE) exhibition Aug 8 to 12

A multi-sensory, immersive art installation by Anna Jaaniste charting her dreams and memories of cultural heritage and of lands in Estonia and Sydney.

ILMAPUU is an immersive installation within the Estonian Cultural Centre, Surry Hills. In this work, Anna Jaaniste recreates her stories and impressions of lands in Estonia. Sculptures, sound and video bring physical form to her sensory and imaginative responses to land in Soomaa National Park, Estonia. A large constructed shelter, water bodies, soundscapes, recorded journal writings and other elements combine in the space to create a multi-sensory experience for audience members to enter and experience. This work is part of Anna’s research which explores interconnections between herself, her Estonian cultural heritage, and land in both Estonia and Sydney.

I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and waters in which I live – the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation.
