A project of art installations by Arte Sella in Borgo Valsugana (TN)



In 2019 Arte Sella and the Municipality of Borgo Valsugana initiated the SKY MUSUEM project, which saw the creation of three artistic installations in the historic centre of Borgo Valsugana.

For the first time Arte Sella has been confronted with an urban space, giving life to a path of enhancement of the architectural and landscape qualities of the historic centre.

After the first artwork commissioned in 2019 to the English artist Stuart Ian Frost, who created the artwork, The Broken Oak made from oak trees that had been uprooted by the Vaia storm, the second phase of the project involved the artists Edoardo Tresoldi and Cédric Le Borgne, two artists already well known to the visitors of Arte Sella, who have created in recent years respectively Simbiosi and The Invisible Woman at the exhibition area of Malga Costa.

Counter-Facade is a succession of metal mesh pieces, four meters high, designed by Edoardo Tresoldi for the “Community House” of Borgo Valsugana. The installation reveals the decorative features of four Renaissance-inspired aedicules, conceived as an inverse expression of form. Usually thought of as an ornament of a building, the aedicules here become the antithesis of their function as they prepare to welcome the changing succession of natural phenomena and to celebrate the landscape. In Counter-Facade the protruding tension of the installation is opposed to an inward-facing pressure of the architecture, which makes the façade an interlocking action between an anthropic action and an intervention of nature.

The French artist Cédric Le Borgne proposes a light and floating work: The Flying Man.It is also made of wire mesh and is located near the Venetian bridge, thus creating a visual continuity with the work of Edoardo Tresoldi and directing the observer's attention onto the Brenta river and on the relationship with the view of the mountains, framed by the profiles of the houses of the historic centre.
