“The landscape, culture and creative language, shape the space we act and we live in the Dolomites. The appropriation of space is an expression of wish thinking, which becomes reality through a creative reflection. 7 architects and 7 artists from the northern region of Italy, Southtyrol/Südtirol, show their outcomes at The Schusev State Museum of Architecture in Moscow. The exhibited works operate at the blurry boundaries of architecture and art showing their dynamic spirit in a unique exhibition.”
The “Dolomites” refers to the region, where the architects and artists come from. The typical landscape shapes the valleys, villages, nature and climatic conditions of the southtyrolean region, located in the north part of Italy. Also the modus operandi of architecture and art are reflecting a strong identitarian relation to the surrounding environment.
The architects express their works with drawings and physical models combining them with personal landscape images. The artists show their works, which range from paintings to installations and photography, showing their strong relation to landscape and culture.
The title, “Appropriation of space” allows an open and common title to unify architecture and art. The limited amount of positions of the participating architects and artists should be equal and symbolised by a symbolic number. The “7” refers to many cultures and quite often defines a dynamic cycle. The exhibition offers 7 positions to architects and 7 to artists to create an entity 7/7=1, hosted in the Dolomites.
