In Marianna Tedeschini’s “Katabasis,” we descend into an underworld of frozen emergences, disrupted reflections, and landscapes caught between life and death. “Katabsasis” takes us on a quest through landscapes teeming with uncanny essence—is it life? is it death? Familiar, yet haunting presences animate these seemingly lifeless scenarios we encounter. Whatever lurks within the trees and whispers in the tall grass, this subterranean energy repeatedly thwarts our expectations, disturbs perceptions, and even makes us laugh at times.
