Antoinette Nausikaa - Breathing Mountains


Five years ago, Antoinette Nausikaä decided she wanted to observe mountains. In the middle of her frantic urban life she developed a need for stillness and solitude. Soon however, she discovered that ‘pure’ silence and solitude were nowhere to be found. She lived and worked on and around eight ancient mountains in Europe and Asia, each one of them a sacred icon and a pilgrimage destination. She observed them, climbed them, photographed, made drawings and dug in the earth for clay to make small sculptures. And so, almost casually, her quest developed into an investigation and presentation of one of the most pressing philosophical themes of this moment: the Anthropocene.
