Seventytwo tree trunks & artists, one collaboration

A digital archive houses the 72 tree trunks in the Bregenz harbour. They represent 72 artists and their works on the theme of equality and respect for all living beings. The intermezzo of art through the pandemic has encouraged the transfer of many artworks to the digital; a QR code leads to a website where the works can be seen.

peter+paula turns into round72

Angelo Roventa is fascinated by the cultural heritage of the region as reflected in the signage of society. In 2018, he placed 12 tree trunks next to the Andelsbuch church of Peter and Paul and temporarily created a sacred, natural space. The tree trunks, as tall as the church tower itself, defined the circular space, with which the universalist Roventa created a speaking symbol for gender equality. The 12 tree trunks of the „peter+paula“ tower were transformed and processed for 72 for Bregenz. When entering the interior, the person becomes part of the exhibition. „Inside it is silent,“ the artist-architect quotes the experience from the tree circle of Andelsbuch.

7,2 decades. A constant cycle of life.

12 symbolises the wholeness of the zodiac and the number 6 the union in the sign of love. These 72 trunks form two concentric circles in the installation „round 72“, which again form a space of „emptiness“ in the middle as an essential. In various cultural circles, the number 72 has an important numerical symbolic meaning in connection with mystical and magical ideas. They are symbols and representatives with multi-layered interpretations. Symbols, however, acquire a double meaning in that they „reveal and conceal“ at the same time. The number 72 refers to the representation of a pentagram in a circle with 360 degrees. This five-pointed star is a symbol of the microcosm as the archetype of man.

Architect, Visionary & Creator

Through the primacy of the spirit and the principle of universal love, a dramatic yet orderly field of tension is formed. In this process, the chaos of the elements is transformed through awareness into an order in which the separating, in the sense of the polar tension and difference in our world, is given a new context through the connective of love. The pentagram as a microcosm refers to the human being who has recognised in himself his inherent law as an expression of inner autonomy and strives to realise his life in commitment to an inner order and in respect for and responsibility towards all living beings. And becomes a „flaming star“ himself. Angelo Roventa is a visionary artist-architect.

72 Artists & Artworks

Rondo 72 is a plea for the importance of art in public perception. Angelo Roventa constantly poses critical questions around man’s housing and shelter in this world. Most of the artists who were already present at Peter + Paula in Andelsbuch are now back. Plus some new ones.
