Silvia Buol, "hidden traces" Art interventions and performances, a special exhibition in the landscape of the Bernina Lakes.

The project "hidden traces" shows real and imagined traces, plays with the imagination and encourages observation. It asks questions about the mountain landscape, the nature of the stones and the invisible world beneath the surfaces.

Through visual and dance realisations of movements and lines in mountains and ice, visitors are invited to move more slowly, to broaden their view and to perceive the landscape with different senses. The "hidden traces" project encourages moments of stillness, discovery, immersion in details of stones, glaciers, winds, weather, sounds, mountains and lakes - "Rethink Destinations".
