On Saturday 1 April 2017, Dolomiti Contemporanee proposes an Open-studio at the Colonia (summer camp building) of the former Eni Village of Borca di Cadore. During the course of the afternoon, two works in particular will be showcased: Peak, by Nicolò Degiorgis, and INTHEMOUNTAINS, by Giorgio Orbi.

The collaboration between Museion and DC icludes the presentation of the Peak artist in Borca. The magazine will be installed onto a structure inside the woods around the Colonia. The pictures of the peaks follow one another, brought together two by two – from the absolute blackness of the night views to the blinding brightness of the snowy summits – recounting the principle of cyclicality that governs the lives of the mountains.

INTHEMOUNTAINS is a project with a wide scope, which gathers many of Giogio Orbi‘s experiences in regards to alpinism, and brings them to Borca.

It’s a series of operations that take part in the Dolomites of the Cadore area, and inside the neighbouring territories through different mediums, and which give shape to an organic kind of reflection.

INTHEMOUNTAINS ponders over the role of the artist and of the evolutionary dialogue that they intend to prompt with the mountain and its landscape. An essential role to depict and welcome the transformations and mutations of the contemporary mountain.

Mountains look so beautiful that once you start looking at them you can’t stop. A glance lasts only a moment but it takes part of the whole metamorphosis.

The title of the project comes from a section of the poem The Waste Land, by T. S. Eliot, written in 1922.
