YASNA SKORUP KRNETA: AMBIENT INSTALLATION "IN THE BOSOM OF MOTHER KASTAV

Ambient art installation – objects made of metal and discarded items – displayed in the old town of Kastav, in front of Crekvina. This unusual artistic creation represents Kastav with its houses and recognisable bell tower… This picturesque miniature town tells us a story about the past, but also about the present inhabitants of this ancient town.
Yasna's eternal source of inspiration are Istrian hilltop towns, to which she always attributes some symbolic meaning, like the "town in the arms of the earth“, or the "town in the bosom of the universe“. This story of Kastav should also be viewed in this context. Kastav's ancient stone houses, which have been taken as the model, symbolise the origins, fireplace, refuge, protection, stability, life energy, and duration.
