At Awasi, we believe that Nature and Art are deeply intertwined. They are both valuable, fragile and essential for human beings.

This is why we invited two innovative and creative artists to Awasi Iguazú, our Relais & Chateaux lodge in Northern Argentina’s Atlantic Rainforest.

Ingrid Weyland is a photographer whose work has been exhibited in cultural institutions and galleries throughout the world.

“This was my first collaborative experience with other artistic disciplines,” says Ingrid, “and it was a very pleasant surprise. I feel that my photography expands and enriches itself, adding layers of depth to its meaning, and allowing a broader perception of the message: the desperate need to protect our environment, nature and humans together. A task that can only be achieved as a team.”

Teresa Marcaida is a dancer and choreographer who studied at the Juilliard School in New York and has been part of dance companies in Germany, Italy and Canada.

Each artist individually interpreted the local landscape before collaborating on this performance with the aim of raising awareness around the protection and conservation of the natural areas surrounding our lodges.

Please take a look at our Nature as Art page and a moment to watch the short film in full.

With a special thanks to Teresa Marcaida, Amhaus Art and Ingrid Weyland.

Awasi Iguazu is located in the Atlantic Rainforest in Northern Argentina. Built on stilts for minimal impact on the precious surroundings, at our Relais & Chateaux lodge we aim to give our guests an experience of immersion in nature. Each room is given its own private guide and 4×4 vehicle so guests can explore at their own pace, following their own unique interests.
