Paysages de sculptures. PAYSAGES DE SCULPTURES : l'Art dans la nature Plusieurs communes des Lofoten ont participé à un intéressant projet artistique développé dans toute cette région Norvégienne du Nordland.

Paysages de sculptures

Des artistes de différentes nationalités ont été invités à réaliser des oeuvres en pleine nature entre 1992 et 1996 Au Lofoten, l'emplacement de ces oeuvres est bien indiqué (Skulpturlandskap), aussi lors de nos balades nous avons fait quelques haltes afin de les admirer. Voici les quatres sculptures des Lofoten (la cinquième étant placée dans l'île de Røst, nous n'avons pu la voir).

Splendides, surprenantes ou inattendues ... c'est de l'Art ! Présentation.

Antony Gormley- The Horizon Field / David Levene photographs. Roxy Paine l Dendroids. Dendroids in Public and Private Collections Vascular Man, 2011, Artist Collection, 10’ x 27’ x 6’

Chillida - Le Peigne du Vent. Camouflage. PRESCHOUX cocoon. Vestige - RobMulholland. The essence of who we are as individuals in relation to others and our environment, forms a strong aspect of my artistic practise.

Vestige - RobMulholland

In Vestige I wanted to explore this relationship further by creating a group, a community within the protective elements of the woods, reflecting the past inhabitants of the space. Before the First World War this area of Scotland was open hillside with small sheep farming Crofts [ farms ] and rural communities. The crofters were moved to other land by the government as there was a desperate need for timber after the war. The area was planted with fast growing conifer trees suitable for harvesting softwood and the landscape altered once again. Lumière. Barry Underwood. Jim Sanborn l Les immenses projections. Marier nature et technologie et ce, à grande échelle : c’est l’excellent projet de Jim Sanborn.

Jim Sanborn l Les immenses projections

Né en 1946, Jim Sanborn est un artiste accompli, dont la photo est l’une des facettes. Durant les années 90, il s’est ainsi attelé à un un grand chantier : projeter des formes géométriques de très grande taille sur des paysages naturels. Utilisant un projecteur à 400 m de distance, il produit des poses longues de nuit utilisant la lumière naturelle de la Lune ou celle de puissants projecteurs. Le résultat est impressionnant. Notom, Utah, 1995 Horse Valley, Utah IV, 1995. Musée à ciel ouvert Alan Gibbs.

Alan GIBS ' collection sculptures. Leon van den Eijkel, Red Cloud Confrontation in Landscape - Gibbs Farm. Tried and true colour harmonies based on the three primary colours of red, yellow and blue, are pitted against what van den Eijkel calls his “Pacific colours” in a dialogue between European modernism and the southern hemisphere environment.

The work also pits itself against the gradient and colour gradations of the farm’s green slopes with its precise articulation of a true horizontal plane, the grid and of perfect squares; and through its composition of solid colours floating on their pure black plinths. Leon van den Eijkel was born in The Hague in The Netherlands in 1940, and studied at The Hague's Royal Academy of Arts from 1958 to 1963. He immigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands, in 1986 and now lives on Waiheke Island, Auckland. Neil Dawson, Horizons - Gibbs Farm. Dawson’s Horizons is one of the earliest sculptures to be commissioned for the Gibbs Farm.

Sitting as it does on one of the highest points in the property it is also one of the few works that can be seen from the road. Marijke de Goey, The Mermaid - Gibbs Farm. The work bridges an artificial lake and marks the culmination of her cube-skeleton series, which range in size from tiny brooches to monumental forms.

Andy Goldsworthy, Arches - Gibbs Farm. Built with stone quarried in Lead Hills, Scotland not far from where Gibbs’ forebears came from, and formed from ancient Roman arches, this work looks back along lines of genealogy, migration and architectural traditions.

But the sculpture also has an immediacy derived from the gradual weathering of the stone by water, wind and fetch on the tidal flats, which brings the viewer face-to-face with the ever-changing character and power of its surroundings and the here and now. Andy Goldsworthy was born in Cheshire, England, in 1956 and was brought up in Yorkshire. He studied at Bradford Art College and Lancaster Art College.

Andy Goldsworthy is an extraordinary, innovative British artist whose collaborations with nature produce uniquely personal and intense artworks. Using a seemingly endless range Dumfriesshire. Richard Serra l Te Tuhirangi. Serra’s 56 steel plates lean out by 11 degrees from the vertical and trace a single contour line across the land in a way that, in the artist’s words, “collects the volume of the land.”

The work is a hallmark of the strong relationships formed between collector and artist. Serra says of meeting Gibbs, “The first thing he said to me was ‘I’ve just been to Storm King [which has Serra’s Schunnemunk Fork 1990-91] and I want a more significant piece than that. Insolite absurde. Parmiggiani l La forêt regarde et écoute. Parc de Pourtalès – Strasbourg Tandis que l’homme a pour habitude de sacraliser la nature en la regardant et en l’écoutant, Claudio Parmiggiani nous donne à la voir différemment.

Désormais c’est elle qui nous observe…
