Palma de Vechio pop up square completed in Italy

The transformation of the outdoor space of GAMeC (Galleria d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo) was conceived by Studio Fink as a celebration of the first large retrospective exhibition of an important renaissance painter Palma il Vecchio.  In the pop up square a free flowing use of colour is contrasted with enlarged details of drapery taken from Palma de Vecchio paintings and details of some of the faces seen in his paintings of "Holy Conversations".

This Peter hopes will encourage people to start sensing through their own conversations in the temporary square how Palma il Vecchio art develops poems of glances, stories, nostalgia, discoveries.

Working for nature and society

An extensive strategic study for the Land Art reclamation of the Osinbeltz quarry in the Basque Country completed in collaboration with Peter Neal Consulting and ICP environmental engineers. Peter Fink as an artist was selected to lead a new restorative initiative due to his experience of land art projects such as Northala Fields. 

The Osinbeltz Quarry is today the largest quarry without quarrying activity in Gipuzkoa province. The geographical orientation of the quarry, its landscape setting, geology and face profile makes the quarry particularly suitable for environmental recovery. The recycling management of the Gipuzkoa province domestic and industrial waste will provide through a newly constructed Mechanical Biological Treatment plant both the financial resources and the innertised material required to restore the quarry void.

The main principle of the project will be environmental mitigation and the delivery of sustainable new uses
 that will enhance the social and economic value of the restored landscape. Peter carried out the extensive public consultation in the Basque Country during a three-month period, involving 18 consultative workshops and presentations in 14 neighborhoods with hundreds of people of all ages taking active part.
