works and Installation
Nearly thirty artists will be leaving their original mark on the landscape of Andorra during the first Andorra Land Art International Biennial. And they will be doing so in locations that they themselves have chosen from a long list of proposals offered by the organisers. Those locations sit within all seven parishes of the country: Canillo, Encamp, Ordino, La Massana, Andorra la Vella, Sant Julià de Lòria and Escaldes-Engordany. Most of these installations are ephemeral, an essential characteristic of Land Art: if the materials used are taken from nature, the works of art are exposed to the inherent changes of the environment. However, some of them will remain there, bearing witness to this first celebration of the Biennial, for the many editions to come.
A massive praying mantis, a golden rooster and a white donkey in obvious contrast, several matches that have fallen out of the pocket of a giant in the courtyard of a museum, a straight white line in the middle of a scree that can be seen from everywhere, some huge orange spheres that seem to float in the middle of a square, a façade wrapped up with coloured fabrics and a burnt tree trunk, sculpturally twisted in a retreat-type space are a few of the creative pieces that will be lighting up Andorra with a completely new way of understanding art as something inextricably tied to the environment in which it is conceived and applied.
