AIR CAMPO is a residency for young artists of the Academy of Fine Arts of Verona at Campo di Brenzone, which for its first edition saw the participation of the artist Elena Mazzi as an exceptional mentor.
Campo, a medieval village isolated among olive groves and overlooking Lake Garda, is a cultural heritage of undisputed value. Today, the village is almost uninhabited except for a single resident family, a few artisans and artists who have their workshops here and slow tourism that passes through it daily.
Thanks to a series of exercises, presentations and excursions with experts from the territory, during the residency, the five selected artists explored Campo for its historical, social, economic and environmental characteristics, bringing back to life the astonishment that this village naturally arouses. The result is five site-specific works, each of which reflects on some aspects of the idea of wonder, declining it within the realm of the concepts of mirage, migration and rurality.
The works remained on display, installed in the village, for six months.
