Papčo’s works on view in the Biennale Gherdëina 6th pay a tribute to the mountains’ heroes. A series Citizens, executed in bronze and wood, consists of sculptural portraits of mountain climbers, named Jaroslav, Miroslav, and Andrej. The figure of Andrej had been placed by the artist up on the rocky hills of the Dolomites’ Cortina and is available to the viewers through a lifestream installed in Circolo.
