Avalanches, their power, dynamics and the unexpected are the curatorial point of departure for the next site-specific winter exhibition curated by Neville Wakefield and Olympia Scarry. Launched over the weekend of 3-5 February 2017, this second iteration of ELEVATION 1049 moves in novel and unexpected ways. It travels quite literally through the storied landscape itself. It invokes alongside solid architectural sculptures and forms, the invisible patterns of life itself: of the rare mythical creatures that soar above the Diablerets Mountains, the circulation of imperceptible particles in nearby Cern, the digital collisions of sound and light closer to home, the crystalline structure of snow and the elemental forms of fire, sound, smoke, dance and ice to create new choreographies of meaning amidst the now familiar snow-covered landscape. ELEVATION 1049 is supported by the LUMA Foundation, the founding patrons and private donors.
