Scaffolding leads directly into the Congress Centrum. Above it hover six larger-than-life figures, bowed and tilted and truly alive. The Ladin sculptor Lois Anvidalfarei situates his creations directly and unavoidably within a system of tensions in the here and now, in dialogue between ephemeral delicacy and the gravitational force: whether you see them as safe or trapped, depending on your point of view, the universal dimension is evident.
You can visit the Installtion from August 14 to 30 2019 (ART NON STOP).
