“PAV - Parco Arte Vivente”, Turin’s Living Art Park and Experimental Contemporary Art Centre, is promoting the PAV PRIZE 2011, an international competition organised by Landscape Architect Gianluca Cosmacini, to create an environmental artwork in a portion of the territory of PAV.

Theme of the Prize for the first year: The PAV biosphere: Inner and outer osmotic boundaries.

Over the last decade, the relationship between individuals and the environment has extended – crossing the boundaries by osmosis between inside and outside - to include everyday working and social spaces. Urban space is experienced with a new collective awareness, not only as a container and frame for daily life, but also as an experiential part of our lives.
The rethinking of certain places implies a further reflection on living, that is experiencing the environment and nature in the city’s spaces scaled down to our own size. By reorganizing its tissues and cells into semantic and identity-related possibilities, PAV stands as the space for artistic, cultural and social production.

To use the concept developed by Gilles Clément - who created Jardin Mandala at the Experimental Centre for Contemporary Art and is a Member of the Jury - PAV is an expression of the Third Landscape, an evolving territory in a place that is undergoing transformation. Its inner and outer boundaries merge fluidly and – depending on the interpretations of the artists creating material and mental spaces – they unite different visions of the desired world, both physically and conceptually.

The environmental installation object of the PAV PRIZE 2011 is thus site-specific, but above all it is people & action specific, that is it expresses a sustainable response to the needs of the community, to the needs of the individual living in a place.

While the creation of a space, from the standpoint of its inhabitability, involves a series of actions that may require a semantic reinterpretation of the infrastructure, the competition goal is to create an environmental artwork that will stimulate new ways of being and new attitudes. Thus the prize-winning artwork will suggest sustainable actions and behaviours based on a conception of wellbeing that can be integrated with the environment, and not vice-versa.
Osmosis through the boundaries of PAV has the power, furthermore, to redefine the traditional parameters through which we conceive and experience the landscape, opening itself to our creativity, a resource and tool that is bound to the concept of living, collectively and individually.
