Bosco Arte Stenico 2015

A gentle walk, easily accessible to all, in the surroundings of Stenico, the village dominated by a magnificent Castle in the Giudicarie Esteriori, will host the artwork realized on site by the artists invited to this event of contemporary art. The pieces will be placed alongside a trail in the wood, taking advantage of the different levels a forest can offer: the grass and the ground, the trunks, the branches. Sculptures and installations will begin a dialogue among themselves and with the public through the simbolic language of art. The path, ideally and physically joining the Stenico Castle, the botanic garden of the Adamello Brenta Natural Park and BoscoArteStenico, is going to form a unique itinerary merging Culture, Nature and Art in an environment of exceptional beauty.

For the edition 2015 of BAS the chosen theme is Monsters.

The wood is still a charming place for both adults and kids. A place to find quietness in, while being in the nature, sometimes even a place where to meet, in case of good luck, those cute animals living in there. But it’s also a place where our thoughts can shape up in the most strange ways, where our fears and daydreams, thanks to the lights and shadows playing together, can come true into bizarre and mysterious creatures. Just like in those fairy-tales for children or in historical and mythological literature for grown-ups, the wood can get lively with monsters. Chimaeras, golems, hydras or giants, in spite of their imaginary monster-presence as well as their physical flimsiness, all reveal the mental origin of their existence, today as well as yesterday, in perpetually changing but still amazing forms
