In his cohesion with Pollinaria, Perletta takes the slowness, cyclic nature, and seemingly indecipherability of the vegetal realm to drastically expand the capacity of artwork through time. The body of work will reveal itself over an extended period of time (a solar year) by means of a series of sonic interventions, challenging participants to question their embodied experience within a natural context.

Aequusol 

In the year 2020, Pollinaria launches a distinctive participatory experience to mark the passage of seasons: decoding the data of the landscape to investigate future rural perspectives. Focusing on the scientific, ritualistic, sonic and textual elements that shape currents of cultivated and wild activity, the local community will join agricultural and arts practitioners in speculating rural potential.

Aequusol, combines latin words to describe the emergence of dawn and its departure from night at the equilibrial axis that parts rest and activity, a moment of energetic stasis. Aequusol uses these four transitional points of the year to center the activities that are constantly occurring and fluctuating in value here at Pollinaria. Each celestial episode is totemically represented by a mythological entity blurred into reality and history by it’s fantam-like presence across the particular landscape as well as the region.
