Triglav, 2864 m

- 4 vídeos in VHS (the regular video format used in Slovenia when it became independent in 1991) of 2 hours and 3 minutes each (a full E120 VHS).
- Triglav videos is an spin-off of both Bratstvo / Jedinstvo and Ararat projects.

 

Triglav is a project about the homonymous mountain in Slovenia. The work is divided into four videos showing the mountains four cardinal points (south, east, north and west) and archive images related to the iconography of Triglav. The objective is to show the mountain as a real entity, and as a symbolic element.

Like other mountains in the world (Fuji, Ararat) Triglav has a symbolic value for the Slovenians, as evidenced by the national coat of arms. As a result of this use, it is possible to find iconography of the mountain throughout Slovenia.

Due to the political references that this project could have, in the work recorded personally, the objective was to create neutral representations that show Triglav as it is physically: a mountain mainly constituted of limestone (from carbonates coming from the Upper Triassic and Liassic platforms) that belongs to the Julian Alps, geologically part of the Southern Alps, which geologists consider to be a part of the Dinaric Alps, while geographically they belong to the Southern limestone Alps.
