VORSPIEL - An Introduction to ATEM (the German word for "breath") is a video installation with orchestral accompaniment created by Antoine Wagner.

The  narrative of the video work is loosely inspired by  the third act of the legend of Parsifal (the hero’s return) translated  to an Opera by Richard Wagner in 1882. ATEM explores it’s main theme of  identity, redemption and resurrection.

Antoine  Wagner’s adaptation takes place in 2222. Weather-shifts have made  growing crops arduous. The last plants of Nolos’s alpine settlement have  been stollen by Vorta. Many have tried to retrieve the seeds from the  other side of the valley. None have returned.

A young being guided by Turna is sent to retrieve the Impossible Forest.A two-week exploration of art, science, and nature where humans and forest converge.
