Sissa Micheli - MOUNTAIN PIECES. Reflecting History 19.07.20-11.10.20

Art
Sissa Micheli’s exhibition titled “MOUNTAIN PIECES. Reflecting History” is devoted to the subject of war and peace, granting visitors a behind-the-scenes look of the mountains: beauty vs. a past burdened by war. To set this mood in scene, she takes photographs of former theaters of war located high up in the mountainous High Pustertal Valley. Aside from the grandeur of the mountains, visitors encounter staged elements such as purpose-built flags, propelled soil seemingly suspended in the air, the use of smoke charges, mirroring surfaces and rocks projected through the air. What is striking about many of her works is that the artist herself features in the picture, thereby becoming a protagonist in her own art. Her self-portrayal manifests itself in the form of symbolic representations, her objective being the juxtaposition of identity and history. Her concept-oriented art is inspired by stories, reports, archive materials and pictures combined with her knowledge in the fields of philosophy, photography, art and literature, so that she also takes on the role of a researcher. Sissa Micheli’s aim is to criticize, irritate, ironize and scrutinize, leaving visitors to devise their own interpretation and meaning of peace in the mountain landscape
