The Fourth Landscape is an installation conceived in 2017 to modify the visual impact of the huge reinforced concrete wall rising up next to the Bulwarks of the Belvedere at La Morra, a small town in the Langhe, one of the most inspiring sites of the Piedmont Vineyard Landscapes protected by UNESCO. It is the first production of Atelier del Camouflage, an environmental art project conceived by Hilario Isola, which reinterprets the camouflage technique in an artistic key as an instrument of “restoration” and a device capable of modifying the perception of a landscape, thanks to an innovative die-cut fabric made for the outdoors with recycled polyester yarn and eco-sustainable technologies. Covering the four hundred square metres of wall is the blow-up of a detail of just forty centimetres of the famous Divisionist painting The Mirror of Life by Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo currently in the collections of GAM museum in Turin, aimed at creating an ambiguity between real and pictorial, natural and artificial landscape that questions the role, both perceptive and conceptual, of perspective.
