In other words, we are creating a “country-scape” through artistic intervention. Hence, in much the same way that a tattoo or makeup aims to embellish the human body, the art piece is inserted into the landscape with a set of aesthetic codes. And at the same time, beyond the onsite installations, we are open to other forms of art that take their references from nature or the landscape, whether paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos or other types of offsite installations.
The main goals of the Andorra Land Art International Biennial are:
– To attract a new type of tourism, one that moves for cultural reasons, particularly at a time of year when the country tends to attract less tourism;
– To increase the international prestige of Andorra as a country that has made a commitment to culture and art, with a bold proposal that goes beyond the conventional offers;
– To convey to society the message that the Andorran environment and artistic heritage are two values that need to be underscored and brought to light, both inside and outside of the country;
– To promote the presence of national artists and bring them into contact with other prestigious artists from around the world who will be taking part in the Biennial;
– To spur the entire Andorran society, particularly the future generations (young people and children), to become involved, so as to conceive art as a basic element of contemporary culture.
