This year’s residency focuses on the concept of nature and shamanic cosmology, which according to different historical cultures, religions, and philosophical systems, is an intrinsic connection between all the living entities on the planet (animal and plant world) in connection with the Cosmological World and which has intrinsic connections between contemporary art and nature and Human Being-God.
