Seven Magic Mountains by Ugo Rondinone

Published May 27, 2016

Seven Magic Mountains” is a colorful large-scale public artwork by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone.

Located in the desert outside of Las Vegas, the installation features seven massive dayglow totems comprised of painted, locally-sourced boulders.

“Visible across the desert landscape along Interstate 15, ‘Seven Magic Mountains’ offers a creative critique of the simulacra of destinations like Las Vegas. According to Rondinone, the location is physically and symbolically mid-way between the natural and the artificial: the natural is expressed by the mountain ranges, desert, and Jean Dry Lake backdrop, and the artificial is expressed by the highway and the constant flow of traffic between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.”
