Land Art meeting and exposition
Keep your mind open to a lot of news, in Humus Park!
Art and Nature are always superprotagonists. More than 90 artists are invited. And, this year, they have at their disposal 2 weeks and 3 different locations to create their art works using natural materials.
WHAT’S HUMUS PARK?
It is the most important Italian Land Art event. The Land Art is an artistic form using natural materials. Some of its numbers: 13 days, 3 locations, more than 90 artists from 13 countries all over the words, 8 art schools and academies involved.
Nature offers sets and materials to the Italian and International artists. Working in pairs, they choose materials and work them, creating unique art works, originated “in and for” a certain place. The visitors look for those art works, find and enjoy them as long as nature will “take them back”.
The two artistic directors
Vincenzo Sponga e Gabriele Meneguzzi, have experienced different artistic forms, before studying technical processing with natural materials. In 1986, they opened a workshop where they sell their art works. In 1999, they first approached Land Art, being now among the most important Italian experts. For this event, they choose the artists and coordinate their activities: they are a strong reference point.
Special Guests appearance
In this edition, it is worth pointing out the participation of Nick Neddo, artist and educator from Vermont (US), the author of the book “The Organic Artist”, of the multidisciplinary artist Donald Buglass (New Zealand) and of the Swiss Peter Hess, the artistic director of the Grindelwald festival and “father” of the naturalistic Land Art in Europe. Among the Italians: Marco Nones, winner of the Arte Expo 2015 Competition / Triulza Foundation with the “Svuotato” artistic installation created for Bosco in Città (Milan), and founder of the RespirArt Art Park in Val di Fiemme, together with Beatrice Calamari.
