MARIANO DALLAGO
“Camera obscura”

Mariano Dallago has reconstructed a folding camera in larger scale, to make it accessible to visitors. Inside a lens reflects an upside-down image, just as a real folding camera does. However, the reflection is a typical postcard picture. The artist invites to cross the threshold and to realise how relevant perspective is one’s perception of the world.

Mariano Dallago ha ricostruito una macchina fotografica a soffietto in scala maggiorata in modo tale da renderla accessibile agli avventori. All’interno c’è una lente che sembra proiettare sulla parete il paesaggio esterno, capovolto come avviene nelle macchine fotografiche; l’immagine rivoltata è però un classico motivo da cartolina. L’artista invita a varcare una soglia e a rendersi conto dell’importanza che un’inquadratura artistica può avere nella percezione della realtà circostante.

Mariano Dallago hat eine Balgenkamera in solch vergrößertem Maßstab nachgebaut, dass sie von den Besuchern besichtigt werden kann. Im Inneren projiziert eine Linse eine auf den Kopf gestellte Abbildung, wie man sie in einer echten Balgenkamera beobachten würde. Das Bild ist aber ein klassisches Postkartenmotiv. Der Künstler lädt ein, eine Schwelle zu überschreiten und sich der Relevanz des Blickwinkels bei der Wahrnehmung der Umwelt bewusst zu werden.       

EXHIBIT SPACE
"Ćiastel de Tor" (Tor castle) - Studies have dated San Martin de Tor back to Roman times. A number of paths and the odd point 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. Indeed, it is believed that the "quadra" portion of the word (square in Italian), which was initially used as a term for a surface, was then extended to the whole of the Val Badia valley (Gadertal in German). It was only later that the term "Gader" was introduced – originally "Kaidra" – which comes from a Roman measuring system adopted in this area. Today, the castle, which dates from the early 13th century, houses the "Museum Ladin".
