The Segantini Museum houses the world´s most important ensemble of Segantini works, including his main work, the triptych "Becoming - Being - Passing away", which continues to inspire musicians, writers and visual artists to this day. A fine example of this reception is represented by artist Stephan Schenk´s work "Becoming - Passing away," which will enter into dialogue with Segantini´s three-part cycle of paintings this summer in the Kuppelsaal. Schenk´s diptych consists of tapestries based on two photographs of the same lush peony bush. In one photo, the bush is full of buds; in the second, the roses have already faded. The theme of the transitory is central to the photographer, as it is to the painter. Both consider it in its double and only seemingly contradictory valence: as the transience of everything that exists, but also as the ever-renewing flow of the living, which does not dry up. Mirella Carbone talks to Stephan Schenk about his work and that of Segantini.
