This research brings together the historical thought and sublime concepts of nature through a subject that has never been in the center of an artistic research before: foibe. I photographed and documented these vertical caves, chasms, large sinkholes in Istria and Karst – the photographs as well as sculptures, videos and sound installations convey to the visitor a double sublime suggestion: not only the magnificence of depicted nature that affects the perception, but also of the historical connotation. The foibe tell the history of Europe in the 20th centur y, and also a story of nature and geology spanning millennia and of a number of literary, psychological, theological, mythological and aesthetic impressions. The title is a reference to memory, to the process of remembering, to casting light on a nocturnal subject through artistic research – Dawn is in fact the dawning that gradually leads to light.
