THE MONKEY

FRANZ AVANCINI – 2019

The monkey is a work made by the artist Franz Avancini with the help of some guys, during the workshop dedicated at Ledro Land Art.

The work’s structure is completely made of wood while the outer part is made of straw, with the intent of make the best resemblance to the mammal’s hair.

The monkey is clinging to a tree with one hand, while the other hand rests on the ground in an almost authoritative position. The arms are fully open. These elements convey a sense of welcome towards the visitors, and at the same time protection towards the park and the nature in general.

The important size emphasize the magical aspect of the structure, inspired for a play on words and meaning, by the nearby “Malga Cita”, that every years becomes the protagonist of Ledro Land Art Festival.
