Roberta Segata’s photographic project features the storm known as ‘Vaia’ that struck on 29th October 2018, and its aftermath for the ‘Magnifica Comunità’ of Fiemme and much of the Eastern Alps. That day the face of our woodlands was changed, laid low by a wind travelling at nearly 200 kms per hour. It wrecked everything: the landscape and the lives of the inhabitants. We are here is a non-account of what happened. Thoughts hanging suspended: what is natural and what not? How does humanity dialogue with nature before and after the irreparable? What does it mean to take time out for things to sink in – when all around there is aggressive clamouring for a quick solution? Such is the expectation we’ve been living with. We still are.

One year on from the maelstrom, a host of trees lie flat, despite the community’s constant efforts to safeguard a valley economy based on wood. The magnitude of the event outstrips all possiblity of removing the casulties before nature decomposes them. But life is adjusting all by itself in the penumbra of the forest; the human impossiblity of tidying up the disaster is turning into an opportunity. And the community follows suit: the flattened forest poses a dramatic opportunity to rethink man’s relation with nature, the mountain economy, the future, the past. We are being forced to compare notes with our neighbours, reminded as we are that territorial confines are often political, and by no means so natural. They are a legacy from people who decided the way they did long, long before our time. Which saddles us with the responsibility for those who come after our day of action, and reap what we have sown.

We are here, as a concept and a project, stems from the joint labours of Roberta Segata, Virginia Sommadossi and Elisa Di Liberato, the minds behind Trentino Brand New, a project by Centrale Fies art work space featuring “stories in a minor key” and cultivating new images for the territory.

Her artistic work was inspired by the fusion of these two realities as she uses the body as a narrative frame and photography and video as fortunate means of expression.

In all her works of art, Nature has always been an intense protagonist. She aims to seek a dialogue, a way to find her roots, an unconscious landscape that contributes to a reflection on the humankind.

Today her artistic practise has evolved her focus on the Territory, the place of belonging, by developing projects that involve the mountain Communities illustrated through the eyes of nature, people, their relationship and their history, their tradition and their changes.
