In 2018 the Cona Institute started a guest programme at the Steklenik Gallery, a gallery for sound, bioacoustics and art that hosts up to 7 exhibitions a year. It is located at the Tivoli Greenhouse and developed in partnership with the University Botanic Gardens Ljubljana.
Steklenik Gallery is the gallery for sound bioacoustics and art. It represents art works that link artistic and scientific practices through sound exploration of nature and the environment. Works of art include bioacoustics, sound ecology, sound landscape, sound art, etc. They are intended for curious audiences who are interested in combining botany sightseeing in a Greenhouse with listening to current artwork from the Greenhouse programme.
Gallery addresses audiences who are interested in how space, the environment, nature and its entities coexist in integrated ecosystems. Curators explore the perception and understanding of these phenomena and how they are formed through sound and listening. Listening to this kind of artwork in a space dedicated to the study of plants enriches the experience and enables the connection between nature and art.
