The themes of trees, portals and water distinguish and permeate throughout the landscape of Dello Scompiglio, creating different accents within a constant and diverse musicality.
The impression of this landscape stimulates the reading of the layering of time, of the sedimentation of human action, of the complimentarity and interaction of nature and history. In particular, the space of the Tenuta Dello Scompiglio is punctuated by a series of portals which follow the rhythms of the landscape, modulate the changes and trace multiple paths and transition zones between forest, agriculture and architecture of the landscape. A succession of portals, established through the contradictory and sometimes conflicting demands of nature’s equilibrium and functional human interventions, be they agricultural or cultural, should be accentuated in visual art installations that enable the reading and interpretation of their disposition. A number of limitations dictate the power of movement as opposed to the reassuring identity of the coordinates, as argued by Judith Revel in the essay “Il limite di un pensiero del limite” (“The Limit of Thought about Limit”), through which it is possible to argue the paradox of their ontology, split between union and division.
