Luciano Fabro’s Il Nido, or How to Mediate a Revelation
Luciano Fabro's marble sculpture Il Nido was made for Artscape Nordland in 1994. The sculpture is, after the artist's wishes, located far off the beaten track - on the unpopulated island of Vedøya in Lofoten. This article will discuss the background to the artist’s choice of placing the sculpture in an almost inaccessible location. This choice is discussed in relation to Land Art, Fabro’s other works, and his many artistic statements about identity, creativity, experience and about the relationship between art and nature.
