With a new project the 4th series of Untamed Nights - "Nature Gallery" is being opened
"Nature Gallery" - a place where nature becomes an art object; where natural objects and phenomena interact with people, playing the music of nature on the strings of emotions, was created by the creative cooperation "Skudras Metropole" and design solutions company "Don't Panic".
"Nature Gallery" combines design, installation art, gastronomy, culture. It is a place where nature becomes a work of art and guests have the opportunity to spend the night in a uniquely designed lodge, which mechanically rotates around its axis and surprises with its sliding terrace. Turning to each side of the sky, the lodge frames the landscape captured by the guests' eyes. In addition, you can enjoy a cinema experience "Cinema on the Lake".
In the individual rituals of the day for 2-4 people, it is possible to enjoy a "+- Meal in 360 degrees", to walk a forest path, to hear 8 audio stories about natural objects, in which scientific facts are combined with poetic texts, introducing visitors to the peculiarities of plants. It is possible to see nature installations and listen to poetry from the trees. In addition, you can enjoy the musical performance "Sound in 360 degrees" on the hill of sounds, composed by musician and composer Toms Mikals.
For groups of up to 20 people in the "Nature Gallery", a sensory adventure is offered, which includes a hike, 8 audio stories about natural objects, poetry from trees, a Nature meal created jointly by chef Raimonds Sommers and the creative cooporation "Skudras metropole" and, at the end, a visit to nature installations.
During the hike, during the Natural Meal, fish is baked in earth turf and bread in the fire according to the ancient method, we surprise the participants of the hike with an edible stone, we treat them with heather honey and other forest and field goods and gifts.
The "Nature Gallery" concept envisages feeling the presence of nature through various dimensions. Nature - the healer of the soul; the initiator of feelings; the inspirer of art and design. "Nature Gallery" - a unique design in which nature and man come together in a respectful interaction, creating a human connection with nature, which has a beneficial effect on health, working capacity and the mental world. The project was created for people who are looking for the presence of nature and are ready for new experiences.
"The world is going through turbulent and sometimes overwhelming times right now. People's mind is busy every day and stress piles up. Together with the team, we wanted to create a place and environment where people can regain their strength and draw energy. I can't think of a better healer than nature. Combined with culture, design and gastronomy, it surprises and positively affects restless minds. We created the "Nature Gallery" together with artists, actors, composers, cooks and designers. I am grateful to everyone who indulged in this new experiment, so that as a result the guests of "Dabas Galerija" will draw a lot of positive emotions", says Gundega Skudriņa, head of the creative cooporation "Skudras metropole".
In the "Nature Gallery", visitors can enjoy contemporary poetry from the trees or attend a musical performance of the "Nature Gallery" installations "Sound in 360 degrees" and "Cinema on the lake" in a special sound hill. The selection of films and concerts was created together with LMT Smart TV, while the installation and projection energy is provided by Neste Latvija with 100% renewable fuel Neste My.
Objects - insects, mosses, branches and other living creatures or elements of nature - are also marked on the gallery path, which, together with an audio text summarizing the scientific factology of biophilia and the specific nature element, provide an additional idea of the natural processes.
