The Carnival of Ordino is back this year with a performance of the Smugglers, with help from the whole town.
Battling against gravity and in one of the most abrupt locations for Andorra’s contemporary sculptures, we come to this monument.
- Arcalís 91
The author, Mauro Staccioli represents the opposition between the natural law (not the law of nature) and the law of man, between the minimal forms and the complication of nature, between a cold and objective world and the subjectiveness which is the basis of the way we are.
From these two oppositions, life is drawn; from these oppositions art is born. This work is located at the place known as “Punt Sublim”, or sublime point, at the Arcalís ski resort in the parish of Ordino.
The circumference as a symbol of perfection and eternity is a window to the scenery surrounding it and which plays with the law of gravity in a position as if it were about to begin the descent into the valley.
An almost magic place that you can’t miss.
