#Eden by Mara Cassiani is a call to experience a mystical pilgrimage, an introspective voyage in which the idolatry of the body and its wellness becomes a ritual and meditative practice. The artist creates a multi-sensorial ecosystem where the luxurious experience of the Spa refers – through the use of ritual objects, motivational quotes and mantras – to the human desire of harmony, hydration and liquefaction of the body.
For the exhibition at Link Cabinet #Eden emulates the aesthetics of a common Spa website, offering a number of meditational instruments. Images, animations, sounds and mantras will be regularly uploaded on the website and will be freely available. Downloading these resources on his personal devices, the audience will enjoy a mystical and truly personal experience.

Mara Cassiani is an artist working in the realms of performance, choreography and new media. Her research is focused on creating a contemporary iconography, where new rituals and languages stem from the Internet and memes. The relationship with her audience at large is explored via those visual imageries, soliciting its awareness of the discontinuity between media streaming and the users’ consciousness. Recent works include: YOU AND ME AND EVERYWHERE (2012), TRASHX$$$ (2012-13), MMXIV ICONOGRAPHY (2014), JUSTICE (2015), You can (not) Advance (2015).
 
Link Cabinet is a single web page hosting solo shows where artists exhibit a single, site-specific artwork. Conceived as a white and neutral exhibition space with an essential interface, Link Cabinet is a blank space that will be transformed by the works on display. After the show, the projects won’t be available on the site anymore. Link Cabinet is a project by Matteo Cremonesi for the Link Art Center.

Networked Culture in the Post-Digital Age, a European adventure focused on a new generation of digital interventionism, awarded with a Creative Europe 2014 – 2020 grant.
