Goal

The aim of the program is to equip students with all knowledge in a special field of plastic representation – nature art – necessary to be competent interpreters and creators of aesthetic and visual problems emerging in the three dimensional space.

Nature art

Nature art strives to recreate harmony with nature and directly applies natural materials, objects, energies and sites in creation, that is, it is based on direct physical contact with nature. Time is manifest in concrete manner in the work of art, as at the moment of creation, a certain period of time is already encoded in it. In this case the myth of conventional art work intended for eternity is not prevailed; the piece exists in the time of the periodic changes of nature.

While working with materials, the creator confines him or herself to artisan techniques – mortise and tenon joints, weaving, dowelling, fastening etc. – and avoids using machinery. The nature artist respects folk art, art outside of the Western culture, and does not take it out of its own context.

Sites of practice
