The “Passageway” is a more than head high gate that opens up, a channel that prompts you to step through without words. An invitation to move from nature straight into art and return to nature again. Or maybe the two stone halves are a kind of passage? From Vent or "FENDE" to the "RÖÖFN" farms - as the locals who live here pronounce it. The work of art thus represents a gateway between two worlds of historical events. Vent and Rofen have always been not exactly the same and not only locally separated from one another. In the Middle Ages, the Rofenhöfe farms enjoyed a kind of special status with private rights and were completely tax-free until the middle of the 19th century. Today they are the Eastern Alps’ highest permanently settled farmhouses at just over 2000 meters above sea level. But back to the here and now, to the “Passageway” and its invitation to walk through, to experience the passage first-hand. If you want, you can leave something imaginary behind and step out of the rock as if relieved, from the vertical narrowness towards the horizontal vastness of Barteb’ne.
