Per 16 gior­ni, dal 18 giu­gno al 3 lu­glio 2016, il La­go d’iseo vie­ne ri­pen­sa­to ar­ti­sti­ca­men­te da Vla­di­mir Ya­va­chev, no­to co­me Ch­ri­sto che con le sue ope­re in­ter­vie­ne sul pae­sag­gio, mo­di­fi­can­do­lo in ma­nie­ra prov­vi­so­ria. L’ar­di­ta Land Art di Ch­ri­sto sul La­go d’iseo pre­ve­de, ap­pe­na so­pra la su­per­fi­cie dell’ac­qua, un pon­ti­le gal­leg­gian­te mo­du­la­re, com­po­sto da 200.000 cu­bi di po­lie­ti­le­ne ad al­ta den­si­tà, che co­pre una su­per­fi­cie di 70.000 mq in scin­til­lan­te tes­su­to gial­lo che se­gue il mo­vi­men­to stes­so del­le on­de del la­go. La pas­se­rel­la pe­do­na­le lun­ga 3 km si esten­de sull’ac­qua del La­go d’iseo gra­zie a pi­la­stri di 16 mt di lar­ghez­za e cir­ca 50 cm di al­tez­za con la­ti in­cli­na­ti che con­sen­to­no ap­pun­to di “flut­tua­re” sul­le ac­que del la­go. I vi­si­ta­to­ri pos­so­no spe­ri­men­ta­re l’ope­ra d’arte, cam­mi­nan­do su di es­sa da Sul­za­no a Mon­te Isola e ver­so la sug­ge­sti­va Isola di San Pao­lo. Le mon­ta­gne che cir­con­da­no il la­go of­fro­no inol­tre una vista sce­no­gra­fi­ca dell’ope­ra, a vo­lo d’uc­cel­lo, re­ga­lan­do an­go­li inos­ser­va­ti e pro­spet­ti­ve dif­fe­ren­ti. Il tes­su­to dell’ar­ti­sta con­ti­nua poi per 1,5 km nel­le vie pe­do­na­li a Sul­za­no e Pe­schie­ra Ma­ra­glio. Il La­go d’iseo è sta­to scel­to da Ch­ri­sto in­sie­me al Di­ret­to­re del Pro­get­to, Ger­ma­no Ce­lant. The Floa­ting Piers è fi­nan­zia­to so­lo at­tra­ver­so la ven­di­ta del­le ope­re d’arte di Ch­ri­sto e, do­po la mo­stra, tut­to sa­rà ri­mos­so e ogni com­po­nen­te ver­rà in­du­strial­men­te ri­ci­cla­to. Una nuo­va espres­sio­ne ar­ti­sti­ca di ri­lie­vo in­ter­na­zio­na­le por­ta Ch­ri­sto a sce­glie­re, do­po tan­ti an­ni, nuo­va­men­te l’ita­lia e que­sta vol­ta per im­pre­zio­si­re le ac­que del La­go d’iseo do­po le sue pre­ce­den­ti ope­re in­stal­la­te pri­ma a Spo­le­to nel ‘68, e poi a Mi­la­no e Ro­ma nel cor­so de­gli an­ni ‘70.

For 16 days, from 18th Ju­ne un­til 3rd Ju­ly 2016, La­ke Iseo will be ar­ti­sti­cal­ly rei­ma­gi­ned by Vla­di­mir Ya­va­chev, al­so kno­wn as Ch­ri­sto, who will chan­ge the land­sca­pe tem­po­ra­ri­ly wi­th his work. This da­ring pie­ce of Land Art by Ch­ri­sto on La­ke Iseo will con­si­st of a mo­du­lar pier floa­ting on the wa­ter’s sur­fa­ce, com­pri­sed of 200,000 hi­gh-den­si­ty po­lye­thy­le­ne cu­bes, whi­ch will co­ver an area of 70,000 squa­re me­ters in glit­te­ring yel­low fa­bric that fol­lo­ws the mo­ve­ment of the wa­ves of the la­ke.

The 3km-long pe­de­strian wal­k­way will ex­tend over the wa­ters of La­ke Iseo and will be held in pla­ce by pil­lars 16 me­tre wi­de and 50 cen­ti­me­tre tall wi­th an­gled si­des that will al­low the brid­ge to ‘float’ over the wa­ters of the la­ke. Vi­si­tors will be able to ex­pe­rien­ce the work of art by wal­king on it from Sul­za­no to Mon­te Isola and to­wards the spec­ta­cu­lar island of San Pao­lo. The moun­tains that sur­round the la­ke will al­so pro­vi­de a brea­th­ta­king view of the work, of­fe­ring a bird’s eye per­spec­ti­ve of the un­seen cor­ners of the ‘pier’. The ar­ti­st’s fa­bric will then con­ti­nue for 1.5km th­rou­gh the pe­de­strian stree­ts of Sul­za­no and Pe­schie­ra Ma­ra­glio. La­ke Iseo was cho­sen by Ch­ri­sto to­ge­ther wi­th the Pro­ject Di­rec­tor, Ger­ma­no Ce­lant. The ‘Floa­ting Piers’ will be fun­ded so­le­ly th­rou­gh sa­les of Ch­ri­sto’s art, and af­ter the ex­hi­bi­tion, the work will be re­mo­ved in its en­ti­re­ty and ea­ch part in­du­strial­ly re­cy­cled. This new ar­ti­stic ex­pres­sion of in­ter­na­tio­nal im­por­tan­ce led Ch­ri­sto, on­ce again, to se­lect Ita­ly as the lo­ca­tion for his art, and this ti­me to de­co­ra­te the wa­ters of La­ke Iseo, af­ter in­stal­ling pre­vious works in Spo­le­to in ‘68, and then Mi­lan and Ro­me du­ring the se­ven­ties. n
