WHEN ART MEETS NATURE
In the Pur pine forest, one of the green lungs of Valle di Ledro, artistic creativity becomes an accomplice of nature through the work of reinterpretation of space and interaction with the elements of the surrounding environment, proposed by the artists participating in the project. Along the suggestive path that runs parallel to the Assat stream and leads to Malga Cita, the landscape becomes the guardian and interlocutor of the site-specific interventions that are carried out every year during the summer season.
Erika Inger – 2019
The work depicts a swarm of insects in a concise and essential manner, with the intention of making the viewer aware of the work and at the same time to denounce the problem of the ever more frequent deaths of insects caused by the use of fertilisers and pesticides.
② XENNIALS TRIBUTE
Luca Vallese – 2018
The work was created as a tribute to the 'Xennials' generation identified by the Australian sociologist Dan Woodman, i.e. those born between 1977 and 1983, so that they can take the cue to tell the new generations anecdotes from past eras, ages when you could use a pencil to get to the beginning of the second part of a music album!
Corrado Rosa – 2012
It is not uncommon, walking through the Pur pine forest, to come across snails with "casette" (small houses), snails that drag themselves through grasses, conifer needles, stream sand and forest soil, leaving a silvery, sticky trail behind them.
⑫ TRITONE ALPESTRE
Franz Avancini & Smarmellata – 2020
Tritone Alpestre is a collective work, the result of the second edition of the open land art workshop led by the artist Franz Avancini and promoted by Smarmellata with the support of Piano B.
It is an object of absolute simplicity that traces a new path and creates a short circuit. An oversized and decontextualised broom, resembling the sorghum brooms used to support the witches in their flight that once populated the Ledro valley, or those used by women in their efforts to clean dusty houses.
⑮ VOLARIO ANTROPOETICO
Ars Ruralis: Simone Mulazzani & Valentina Grossi – 2020
Like weaver birds reassembling fragments of plant matter, the Volario is composed of the same essence as its surroundings, and builds itself organically and fluidly.
Giampaolo Osele – 2014
Giampaolo Osele plays with nature, rediscovers it and recomposes it with delicate essentiality. Thus the curious face of a hedgehog emerges from a large trunk. Emerging from one of the many dens hidden in the pine forest, the cute little animal stops along the way to tell those who cross it about the secret activities of its companions.
The monkey is a work of art created by the artist Franz Avancini with the help of volunteers during a Land Art workshop.
The structure of the work is made entirely of wood, while the outside is made of straw, with the intention of rendering the best possible resemblance to the hair of the animal.
㉒ SIGN O’ THE TIMES
Matteo Cretti – 2020
We live in an ever-changing world in which the hand of man has conditioned and continues to condition the planet. The consequences are many, from the depopulation of villages and mountains to the abandonment and intensive modification of agriculture and livestock breeding, all with repercussions on flora and fauna, but also on everyday life.
㉔ COW SHOW
Paolo Vivian – 2012
In a clearing where the cows graze before reaching the alpine pastures, the artist places some stone boulders. For the artist, the natural stones that traverse the history of the earth are like clouds that form and unravel, and they too can take on shapes reminiscent of real or imaginary animals.
Luca Degara – 2012
In Luca Degara's l'Avvolto, the amplitude of the dimensions coexists with the lightness of the materials. The local larch wood has been worked in such a way that all the pieces used, bent with the help of steam, derive from a single longitudinally cut trunk.
