Norwegian-Russian-Finnish border-crossroads in Venice
Stefano Cagol’s solo show “Concilo” is a Collateral Event of the 54th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia .
Video for the installation was filmed in Kirkenes in November 2011 for the project «Evoke Provoke (the border)», which was a part of the exhibition “Mind The Map!” under the Barents Spektakel 2011 festival.
In this video Cagol workes with the border as a transition between water and nature, with human existence under extreme conditions. He catches the moment when the short November sun becomes almost as white as the vast and pure landscape, while at the next moment turning the sky into dramatic colours before disappearing into the darkness. Cagol uses signals of smoke, sound and light to communicate through the borders.
