LIGHT DISSOLUTION (of the borders)

Stefano Cagol's official Parallel Event to Manifesta 7

Site-specific installation, Sardagna hill – Trento, Trentino

Produced by Province of Trento.

Visible from the city of Trento, Trentino

Daily, 9.30 pm – 0.30 am. 16 – 19 July, 2008

Meet the artist: 10 pm. Piazza Duomo, Trento. 17 July, 2008

The light draws lines impossible to be held in the hands, as the same the borders between nations and cultures are. From this idea the site-specific installation Light Dissolution (of the borders) moves.

The intervention looks at the geographical, historical and cultural specificity of the territory, through a wider and universal viewpoint. A powerful beam underlines and shatters at the same time the border between the two provinces of Trentino and Süd-Tirol and the two cultures, the German and the Italian ones that are together in this region. They are not only physical borders, but the mental ones, too. Highly imprinted are by people belongings, beliefs and preconceptions that are unveiled as being inconsistent, as light is, both intense and fragile.
