Giorgia Severi – “Selvatico [14]”

Once there was the Ocean – Mt. Zeil, West MacDonnell Range, 2016

Giorgia Severi participates with the artwork Once there was the Ocean – Mt. Zeil, West MacDonnell Range at the exhibition Selvatico [14] curated by Massimiliano Fabbri.

Mt. Zeil is the highest peak of West MacDonnell Range in the red desert of central Australia, which was covered by an ocean millions of years ago. The work is part of the series Ancestors, started by the artist in 2012, devoted to the greater heads of the landscape that formed the territory. These portraits of mountains and forests are the casts of portions of the landscape, which change quickly or will even disappear as we know them, due to natural or human agents. Related to these visible natural places there is a cultural landscape, the one of the men who live in the territory and developed their culture in relation to the environment that vibrates with their stories. In this case, the mountain is about the cultural landscape of the Indigenous Australians who live there. “The landscape is inside the man who makes it”.
