SAMAMBA Presents “Expedition In Situ?” – An Immersive Art Experience

SAMAMBA is thrilled to invite art & creativity enthusiasts and families to “Expedition In Situ?” – an immersive art experience taking place on February 24th, 2024 at Binefar27, in Poblenou, just a 5-minute walk from La Pau station (Purple Line L2).

Embark on a journey of artistic excavation and exploration with SAMAMBA and talented mixed-media artist Michelle Andrea, as we delve into her captivating “In Situ?” artwork series. This unique experience invites participants to expand their understanding of cultural identity, heritage, looted art, and artifacts through a 360° perspective—artistic, philosophical, scientific, and experiential.

“In Situ?” is not just an art exhibition; it’s a co-creation, a critical reflection, and a creative exploration of cultural diversity and heritage. Michelle Andrea’s artwork, inspired by ancient artifacts, serves as a metaphor to spark conversations about displaced cultural identities and the importance of preserving one’s roots while adapting to a new home.

Michelle Andrea reflects on her series, stating, “It is important to celebrate culture, but what about those who have been taken away from their culture? ‘In Situ?’ experiments with storytelling and pop art to create stylized characters and abstract maps, sparking conversations about cultural diversity and heritage.”
