Shared Landscapes

Seven pieces between woods and meadows

By Barneaud / Kaegi

How can we approach the landscape without distancing ourselves at the same time? What if art did not imitate nature, but allowed us to experience it?

 

“Shared Landscapes” is a performative response to the land art of visual art. The audience is invited outside of cities to spend a whole day among trees, meadows, human and non-human inhabitants. Through subtle artistic open air interventions, audio tours, site-specific music scores, choreographies, media art and theatre, a new community may emerge at the transition between city and countryside.
