Anna Neizvestnova lives and works in Moscow. Her installation "Canto III, Limbo" is located within the parish church of San Cresci. David Hollander lives with goats in sparse dry Colorado where the Great Plains end and the Rocky Mountains begin. “Perishable Fragments” are sculptures built in clay and not fired, they are been placed into the landscape and the cityscape in their raw state so that the weather and the actions of people will continue to shape them. The installation by Serena Piccinini is the migration of a flock of rare Trampolle of the Snows (Nevricus Lungus), fantastic birds, small but with long legs to cover large distances. The Trampolle unlike other birds are always looking for new cold/snowy areas.
