The mountain landscape, with its beguiling mix of natural beauty, urbanity and the sociality of old valley communities, provides an ideal experimental field for Gormley's investigations into the relationship between nature and culture. Of this project, the artist said: “It asks basic questions: who are we, what are we, where do we come from and to where are we headed?” Photographs of the landscape installation are contextualized with images of the artist's previous works.
