Discover Lara Almarcegui’s installation Gravel Works Safienplatz at this year’s Art Safiental from The Institute for Land and Environmental Art Learning from the Earth.
The exhibition explores how to deal with contemporary answers to climate emergencies, highlighting alternatives in which we can dialogue with and learn from the Earth. The works and projects on display in the Safien Valley are commentaries and proposals that critically examine the present and suggest alternatives to current developments and upheavals.
In collaboration with the Safien Valley gravel workers, Almarcegui makes the transformation processes of rock material visible and experienceable. The gravel plant deliberately interrupts every Friday from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m the ballast process and lets the work rest, guided by water and nature wander.
The public can access the premises on Fridays for the duration of the halt: August 21, September 6, and October 21. Learning from the Earth Art Safiental is open until October 23, 2022. Don’t miss it!
