Description: Dolomite rocks, video projection and sound
Dimensions:
Duration: 7:20 min

Three stones or rocks sit on a sofa and talk together about life and death. The location is the old abandoned bar of Hotel Ladenia in Urtisei in the South Tyrol of Italy. Egill Sæbjörnsson was invited by curator and current director of The National Gallery of Prague, Adam Budak, to make a site specific artwork for the Biennale Ghërdenia VI. Sæbjörnsson came on location one week prior to the opening and created the work on location, found the rocks, developed the script and wrote and recorded the dialogue of the stones. The work is a pure in situ artwork, based on the theme of the Biennale “Writing the Mountains” and inspired by the dialogue with the other artists, the curator Adam Budak, and the place itself The Dolomites, that have an extremely long and rich history.
