LandArt in the Auvergne

Born in the 60 this contemporary art comes straight U.S., art out of museums and installs in natural environment. If nature was previously simply represented Canvas, photo, video or other, it will become an integral part of artistic production, offering a framework, depth, emotion and new sensations. While some purists LandArt the materials used must be 100% natural (Wood, minerals, plant, water…) LandArt today continued its evolution and there are also manufactures (to be giving even more meaning to the man / nature of reports).

Far Horizons Sancy traditional exhibition illustrates the successful integration of the work in its environment, a new real-world experience for small as for large, for beginners as for fans. Between artistic discovery and environmental awareness, this is a new way to showcase the natural heritage of the region. This event opens a new door of public art and large spaces Auvergne, the outdoor enthusiasts and refractory museums have indeed found here an attractive alternative.

The caravan from Jean-François Karst

If you want to discover the work # 5, appointment to Arnats then take the farm roads for about 45 walk. No risk of losing, signaling panels Horizons-Sancy will take you smoothly to your obejctif.
Avoid shoes and other small summer shoes, if the path is wide and marked, Recent storms and runoff have degraded parts of the course and it would be a shame to get hurt.

Karst Caravan in the Meadow of the Pinarde


The artist
: Jean-François Karst

The work : Installing the 4 meters long 2,5 meters in width and height. The caravan is 10m2 surface and weighs about 1,7 tonnes. It is made of brick and metal reinforcements for the roof.

RV Entry Karst

Located on the meadow Pinarde, it lies in Scots pine at the top of the hill (925m) and offers stunning views of the surrounding.

Rear Caravan Karst

Inside, three benches and a wooden table on which you can sit for a picnic, a break in the ballad or simply take the time to enjoy and soak up the work.

Inside the Caravan Karst

These crude furniture also act guestbook, Posts visitors will make you smile, writing about the Caravan Raphael, lack of window and door, jokes of all kinds, travelogue, impressions and returns spect'acteurs'… etc etc… Visitors therefore leaving a trace of their passage with their messages and decorative touches (using pine cones)… The caravan would it become a participatory work ?
