INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM: ART – NATURE Gabrovtsi 2019 Gabrovtsi Village, Veliko Tarnovo region in BULGARIA
Review by Kuei-Chih Lee, AiNIN members from Taiwan
This is a very beautiful place, especially for a land-art artist. The base located in the old school and nearby the forest and river.
The project “ART – NATURE Gabrovtsi 2019”, unites artists working in the field of visual arts – professional sculptors, painters and photographers, active on the international artistic stage and interested in the contemporary development of visual art trends like art-in-nature and site-specific art. Except local artists, there are many artists from different countries. There were more than 10 artists joined this event this year.
It’s an “INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM” program and also a residency event, artists live in the old school, which is in the natural environment, the food provided is excellent and delicious.
Although they cannot cover traveling expenses outside Bulgaria to artists, but they can offer Invitation letters to selected artists that could help to get funding with other entities.
This event is organised by “DUPPINI ART GROUP” in Bulgaria and they are a friendly and an organised group. Also they have volunteers who could help artists create artworks, borrow the tools, buy the materials.. etc, and they are very helpful and kind. They are not only helpers but can become your good friends as well. The landscape is diverse and excellent to create large works and some spaces indoor for exhibition. Most of the artists use the site materials, recycled and natural materials from the surrounding which makes sense fit the theme “ART – NATURE Gabrovtsi 2019”.
It’s my pleasure to recommend this project to you.
