To coincide with the 2015 Expo Milan, the ZegnArt contemporary art foundation commissioned Lucy + Jorge Orta to create Fabulae Naturae, an installation involving sound, performance and food, transforming the Ermenegildo Zegna Global Headquarters into an immersive environment. Set within the architecture designed by Antonio Citterio, the artists imagined a rain forest-scape comprised of an immense tree drawing, its extending branches interwoven with the imaginary species the artists invented after returning from expedition to the Amazon in 2009.
