MOMENTS W/ DENIS HORVAT
LUMEN MUSEUM, PLAN DE CORONES
THE ARTIST | DENIS HORVAT
Copenhagen based Denis Horvat has quickly become a hot topic in the underground music industry, with his melodic signature sound. A self educated producer with a quite simple musical background as a drummer, he managed to put himself on the map, with releases on Innervisions, Afterlife and Diynamic. Focusing on detailed tracks, with selections that weave a tapestry from start to finish, his sets have resulted in Horvat now regularly sharing the bill with some of the world’s most revered selectors, including the likes of Âme, Dixon and Maceo Plex.
THE LOCATION | LUMEN MUSEUM
A particularly striking and evocative dimension of art is when it is set in a wild and uncontaminated context, simulating a return to its origins. As custodians of art around the world, there are many museums that have carved out a living space just a few kilometers from the city, have sprung up like lotus flowers on exotic islands, or like crescent blooms on the highest peaks. There is a great choice of courage in these buildings, designed to highlight a millenary territory, choosing it as a home and entering into complete symbiosis with it, refreshing that everlasting and fruitful link between art and nature.
A great example of this relationship can be found in Trentino-Alto Adige, a region in the North of Italy. Until 1986, the old mountain station of the Plan de Corones cable car stood here at an altitude of 2,275 meters. From this old structure a stunning recovery project was born in 2018, which has brought to light a new institution, the Lumen Museum, dedicated to mountain photography. As a fascinating consequence of this location choice, the museum can either be reached by taking the cable car from the valley or directly by skiing from above.
