ARTESELLA TRENTINO | JANUARY 26TH / FEBRUARY 1ST 2018 - NUMBER 1240
The contemporary mountain. For more than thirty years, art and nature have come together in an ongoing dialogue, where international artists are invited to meet in the Val di Sella to create works that are rooted in history and the unique nature of this place. The artist is not the absolute protagonist of the work of art, but rather accepts that it is nature who completes their work.
Nature must be protected as it is a treasure chest of memories and is no longer merely protected, but interpreted in its absence too. Thus, the relationship with ecology changes too. The works are placed in the here and now and are built with an emphasis on natural materials. These materials leave the landscape to then return to nature.
