Artist Adam James has chosen a performing representation and defines his work a “sculptural installation”: it's an experiment to try to establish a dialogue with the public. In a small wooden house, the artist hangs brightly coloured foam objects which visitors are encouraged to use them. This way, the viewer becomes a roaming monument, and visiting the museum or strolling in the nature, he becomes both creator and protagonist of a story yet to unfold. The contrast is created by formal and contextual antinomies that border on the absurd. The main point of this project is to observe the viewer's artistic sensibility. The artist invites everyone to interact, encouraging them to take photographs or videos and share them using the hashtag #thepaleexchange. Everything that visitors will publish will become part of the final work.


THE Ciastel de Tor, San Martin

Studies have dated San Martin de Tor back to Roman times. A number of paths and locations found in what is now the town centre can be traced back to the practice of subdividing land into quadrilateral lots, which was typical of the era. Also, it is believed that the word "quadra" (square in Italian), which was initially used as a term for a surface, was extended to the whole of the Badia valley (Gadertal in German). It was only later that the term "Gader" originally "Kaidra" – “Square”. was introduced. Today, the castle, which dates from the early 13th century, houses the "Museum Ladin".
