GUIDED TOUR • Solo artist Emanuele Occhipinti • A’ Muntagna

In ‘A Muntagna’ the Italian documentary photographer Emanuele Occhipinti examines the deep, ambiguous and emotional connections between the sleeping volcanic beauty, Mount Etna (Sicily), and the locals who have lived on its slopes for centuries. Occhipinti is interested in the peculiar but very close relationship with the dormant giant that both enriches the land and its people with extraordinary beauty, sentiment and fertility, but also burns down crops and drowns entire villages in ashes once it decides to erupt.

The exhibition collects 50 Photographs from the vast work of the artist on this project, which will be displayed in the middle of the Festival Center on Refshaleøen. The interconnection between humankind and the natural environment, and the consistency of a documentary project, are emphasised by the disposition of the photographs, which will be guiding the viewer through a path, creating a narration surrounded by raw wilderness.

On June 8th, from 14:00 to 14:30, Emanuele will give a guided tour of his solo exhibition at the Festival Center.
