Bosco Arte Stenico 2019

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.

Just above the village of Stenico, where you can appreciate the castle from, a comfortable walk, completely accessible to accompanied disabled people, will be the perfect way to come across the works left just where they have been made by artists – guests of this opportunity of close contact with contemporary art. As a matter of fact, the works will be scattered along a path in the wood, though situated on different ‘levels’ of it – grass, trunks, branches: intended to be both installations and sculptures inside trunks stuck on the ground, the works will communicate with each other and with visitors through the symbolic language of art.
The pattern linking the Castle of Stenico, the natural area Rio Bianco (Adamello-Brenta Park) and BoscoArteStenico will create a unique route inviting visitors to enjoy Culture, Nature and Art in a landscape background of extraordinary beauty.


For the 2019 edition of BAS the chosen theme is ``up``.

The 2019 edition of BAS is seeing the light after the mountains and the woods, particularly in the region of Trentino, went through a very difficult and dark moment. Dramatic meteorological events caused the fall of thousands of precious tall trees and many areas of the region appear as the result of a harsh battle between trees and wind, after which lots of damaged trees can be counted on the ground. These images are now fixed on our minds and have become a metaphor which hints at something bigger than us. Our nature showed us its aggressive side, perhaps as a punishment due to our disrespect for it. The fall of thousands of trees and the impetuous rain stroke everyone, arising a feeling that goes far beyond the awful physical consequences. It was therefore decided to dedicate the theme of the 7th edition of BAS to this feeling, using a title that could act as a lucky charm for the future. “UP” represents indeed the desire to restart, to move on, to put things back on their feet, to reborn, to grow again.
