About Val Camonnica

Valcamonica, the most extensive of the Lombard valleys and no less renowned for its ancient military history, for its most honourable noble families, and men who were distinguished in letters, in arms, and public offices, and famed for the fertility of its soil; for the industry and commerce of its people…

—Agostino Caggioli – Storia di Valcamonica, 1853

Val Camonica (also Valcamonica or Camonica Valley, in camunian dialect Al Camònega, poetic Camunia) is one of the largest valleys of the central Alps, in eastern Lombardy, about 90 km long. It starts from the Tonale Pass, at 1883 metres above sea level and ends at Corna Trentapassi, in the comune of Pisogne, near Lake Iseo. It has an area of about 1,335 km2[1] and 118,323 inhabitants.[2]

It is traversed throughout its full length from the river Oglio, which begins in Ponte di Legno and terminates in lake Sebino between Pisogne and Costa Volpino.

Valle Camonica derives its name from the Latin Vallis Camunnorum, that means “the Valley of the Camunni“, the name by which the Romans called the inhabitants (today are called Camuni).

Almost all of the valley is included in the administrative territory of the province of Brescia, excluding Lovere, Rogno, Costa Volpino and the Val di Scalve,which are parts of the province of Bergamo.

About Ilya the Artist

Ilya Kitup 10.03.1964

Cocaine              Heroin
2006 ,90×75              2006 , 90×75

As can be seemed at first sight (especially if you look at pictures “Cocaine” and “Heroin”) Ilya Kitup just begins his art career. Such a teenager’s straightforwardness – I’m singing that I’m seeing. The drawn rap.

Actually Ilya arrived from Vilnius and he have already participated in exhibitions 1984, and between times have graduated from the Moscow State University at philological faculty. He also participated in exhibitions at Trehprudniy. So he is not a child.

What inspires – industry, techniques, urbanism, futurology, fantasy. Planes with the Arabian texts, barrels with oil, black roofs, yes there is a lot from everyday life, carried to an absurdity The most sincere slogans of the author seem as attempt to joke, and whether it is a joke – only Kitup knows it.

Mix of new wave and kitsch, banality and actuality, methods and plots of a caricature. Whether it concerns to graphity, (post) conceptualism, new wildness or something else, the author find difficulty in characterizing that – it is a business of critics.
