Juan Pablo Marturano -
Offering and Proof Project
In this project, I carry a sculpture I have carved to the peak and offered it to the mountain. This is a symbolic act expressing my climber’s feeling of gratitude toward the mountain for allowing me to reach its summit safely.
In a broader sense, offering the sculpture not only means offering the artwork itself but also the time spent creating the piece and the skills acquired in the process. Considering that my artwork is an extension of myself, I believe that by leaving my sculpture there at the peak, it becomes part of the mountain and I, therefore, somehow become one with the mountain.
