PAV - Parco Arte Vivente
The Parco Arte Vivente (Living Art Park, TN) opened in November 2008 and is part of the rich and articulated city museum system with its own specificity: the analysis, experimentation and spreading of the “art of the living”.
The PAV acts as a place for exchanging, meeting and aggregating art instances aimed at creating new social models. Thus, not only an exhibit space but also a place for research for those artists who work with organic matter, processes and the complexity of the biosphere.
The nucleus of the permanent exhibit is mainly composed of Bioma, the environmental interactive installation by Piero Gilardi, and Trèfle, the vegetable organism by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, which has already become a symbol. The Art Programme, directed by Piero Gilardi and curated by Claudio Cravero, develops alongside these two permanent works; it foresees internal temporary exhibits and site-specific projects in its 23.000-square-metre park, curated by landscape designer Gianluca Cosmacini.
