Sculptural Intervention in Metsovo, 2014

Sculptural Intervention in Metsovo, 2014

This site-specific installation was created for and was part of the autumn activities of the Averoff Museum of Neohellenic Art, in Metsovo. A group of sculptors was called to live in the town for two weeks and create sculptural and artistic interventions, some of them with utilitarian character, in nature, and more specifically along the mountain path Ursa Trail (translation: trail of the bear),  in which the mountain marathon Metsovo Race takes place annually.

This intervention consists of the formation of a natural sitting place for the hikers, using rocks found in the area, following the natural amphitheatrical morphology of the site. Also a sound sculpture was installed, made of tubular bells and wood, which takes advantage of the air in order to create its subtle sound. The overall aim of this project was to create something interesting and unique, playful and useful for the people who hike or take a walk on the path.
