Relational Forest, 2020 Site-specific environmental installation created during the Arteam Cup 2019 prize residency on Monte Beigua (Sassello, SV) in collaboration with the "Cascina Granbego" collective.
21 bands 40 cm high with variable lengths, made with fabrics donated by the inhabitants of Sassello, chalk, minerals and soil collected on Monte Beigua.

The work has been realized on the occasion of the prize residence of arteam cup 2019 in Sassello in collaboration with the collective Cascina Granbego. The work comes from the collection of clothes and fabrics with an emotional value donated to me by the inhabitants of Sassello. Each fabric carries stories, tales, important moments of life, births, detachments and memories. With this affective material were made 21 bands integrated with natural materials collected in the area. The bands were installed on the summit of Mount Beigua on September 9, 2020 during a sort of ritual dressing of 21 beech trees that have allowed themselves to be embraced by the fabrics, in the presence of the people who took part in the project. This work wanted in a symbolic way to unite people to nature: the human and relational values of the inhabitants of Sassello and more generally of all of us joined the territory in 21 warm embraces.
