BAROLO TO HEAVEN
November 01, 2019
Temporary installation
Bricco San Pietro, Monforte d'Alba, Italy
FONDAZIONE RADICAL DESIGN

BAROLO TO HEAVEN is a site-specific installation by Emilio Ferro, created on November 1, 2019 with the support of the Fondazione Radical Design in Monforte d’Alba, the highest municipality among the 11 where Barolo is produced.

A mysterious project that actively involves the viewer and makes him participate in an unveiling, in an all-encompassing artistic journey, in an emotional crescendo that, starting from the historic center of one of the most Beautiful Villages in Italy, leads to the discovery of the atavistic exchange between man and nature, between the sacredness and the symbolism of light. It is a journey that starts from the man-made landscape and leads the public to rediscover the natural landscape of the place through a path in the woods surrounded by darkness.

 

This work proposes the experience of exploration in a broader sense and is configured as an investigation of human perceptions, stimulated by a constellation of visual and sound stimuli. The mysterious project is revealed to the audience at the last, accompanied by an experimental electronic music / left-field techno: loudspeakers and light sources, placed in the dark space, are activated according to a precise score, thus creating an original dramaturgical journey.

 

The Light creeps like a blade through the darkness, reaching the clouds and cutting through the fog.

Fondazione Radical Design, created by Sandra and Charley Vezza, aims to keep alive the unconventional spirit of radical design and create the conditions for anyone to enjoy a widespread experience of creativity, without hierarchical or conceptual superstructures. Fondazione Radical Design intends to celebrate the human and natural capital of the territory in which it is part, promoting artistic experiences capable of enhancing the Genius loci through the production of unpublished works with forms, different ways, and languages that in the hills of the Langhe find inspiration and fertile ground to flourish, show themselves and be experienced.
