A communicative art action will take place in the wild natural region of Avagas Gorge in Cyprus: "Land Art Walk in Communication with Nature, Place and Visitors“ Patronage of UNESCO Switzerland.
This action is inspired by Aion Primal Geometry - 10 symbols found in nature - which joins all religions and cultures over time. Barbara Streiff, an artist involved with AKAMAS, is the curator. Each year she lives and works in the Paphos area of Cyprus as an international artist. She has created worldwide exhibitions and installations with her Aion pictures and sculptures.
Please see the website www.alpswissart.ch for more information.
Everyone - artists, adults and children, tourist groups, and schools are invited to be creative and celebrate nature with the Swiss artists Barbara Streiff and Bruno Kaelin.

The concept behind is, to save and celebrate nature through creative acts. We will build symbols from primal geometry using natural elements and materials: stones, earth, water, and fire. For example, we might build a cross with wood, a spiral with stones, an artwork circle with fire, or a line with water. We only work with local materials from nature and with the natural energy from the Earth.

Individual workshops with the artist and art teacher Barbara Streiff from the international art school Alpswissart are recognized and accepted by the Kunst-Hochschule Zürich and UNESCO Switzerland.

WORLD PROJECT OF ALPSWISSART TO SAVE NATURE WITH PATRONAGE OF SWISS COMMISSION FOR UNESCO 2003


Hallo from the Swiss Alps!

You are invited to take part in a world project under the Patronage of the Swiss Commission for UNESCO: Natural Art Installations around the world will represent the communication that occurs between nature, local places and you, the visitors. In canyons and gorges, on islands like Cyprus, near the Amazon River in South America, on the West Coast of the USA, up in the Swiss Alps, in the Himalayas, across the African desert, on the steppes of Russia - wherever artists live or want to go in nature to build art with materials from the Earth - all artists and children from 7 to 77+ are invited to celebrate nature through their own spontaneous creativity.

This action is inspired by Aion primal geometry - 10 symbols found in nature - which joins all cultures and religions throughout history and time. We will build symbols from primal geometry using natural elements and materials: stones, earth, water and fire. The symbols include the following: point, circle, parallelogram, cross, spiral, line, triangle, square, lightening bolt, and three points or stars for the cosmos. For example, we might build a cross with wood, a spiral with stones, a circle with fire, or a line with water. We work only with local materials found in nature and with the natural energy of the place. The concept behind the artwork is to save and celebrate nature through our creative acts.

Barbara Streiff is the artist and curator behind this project. She has created exhibitions and installations with Aion pictures and sculptures in many parts of the world already. She invites you to be part of this continuing communicative art action by building installations with the primal symbols wherever you are in the world.

The installations should take place in nature, and photos of the artwork created around the world will be presented on the Website www.alpswissart.ch.
Please send a photo of your natural art installation by e-mail to: alpswissart@bluewin.ch with your name, place, date and your comments. And send this e-mail invitation to all your friends!
