The setting up of the “EARTH’S MEMORY” exhibition at the Forte di Bard

Below a gallery with the best images of the exhibition “EARTH’S MEMORY – Glaciers, witnesses of the climate crisis”, which will be open until 18 November 2022 at the Forte di Bard, in Valle D’Aosta.

The exhibition, which received the patronage of UNESCO, is set up in 8 rooms covering 700 square metres and displays a selection of 90 large-scale fine-art photographic comparisons made on the main mountain glaciers of the Earth.

You will find 16 monitors with excerpts from the various documentaries of the project, the elaborations made especially for the exhibition by the ESA – European Space Agency with the main scientific results, some time-lapses of great visual impact by Riccardo Scotti and Luc Moreau, and a selection of backstage photographs to tell the story of the work in the field before, during and after the expeditions. All accompanied by texts signed by the various authors involved: Enrico Camanni, Roberto Mantovani, Claudio Smiraglia, Riccardo Scotti, Claudio Palmisano and Fabiano Ventura.

In the old military chapel, two circular exhibition structures are set up in which you will find two large 7-metre-long photographic comparisons and the interactive video installation “Walking through time” for a sensory experience on the theme of time created in collaboration with Paolo Scoppola.

A section is dedicated to the fundamental and long work of iconographic research, restoration and post-production of historical and modern photographs with videos, texts and original materials by Vittorio Sella.

At the following link you can watch the video presenting the exhibition, with an interview with Fabiano Ventura and Ornella Badery, president of the Forte di Bard.
