La nuova performance Land Art "CLAMOR TERRAE" (Il grido della Terra) dell'artista Fabrizia Zammatteo con l'aiuto del suo Staff, è stata realizzata in data 10 giugno 2022 sull'Altopiano Pian de le Femene. " CLAMOR TERRAE " è un'opera d'arte che sembra sospesa tra cielo e terra, da dove è visibile in lontananza la Laguna di Venezia. Questa Land Art realizzata nel meraviglioso contesto delle Dolomiti Bellunesi patrimonio dell'UNESCO, domina a 360 gradi la pianura veneta, in comunicazione tra i comuni di Limana (BL) e Revine Lago (TV) , localizzata a circa 1000 mt di altezza. La Land Art è una forma d'arte contemporanea, caratterizzata dall'intervento dell'artista sul territorio naturale. Fabrizia e il suo Staff hanno tracciato un percorso nell'erba alta, procedendo poi allo sfalcio, e infine ripassando il disegno con un materiale eco-sostenibile, il tutto realizzato su una parete inclinata di 5/6 gradi. La performance vuole sensibilizzare sul tema dell'Ambiente e Cambiamenti Climatici, oltre al rispetto dell'uomo per la natura.

Maura Freeman - Ant Eater
(sculpture - natural found objects)
5" x 3" x 2"
Maura is a Seattle-based self-taught photographer, videographer, and sculptor. She works with objects found while wandering in nature. Her imaginative sculptures composed of these natural found objects are otherworldly and yet whimsical and amusing at the same time. There are lots of things to love in this amazing world. Two things that stick out for me are travel and sitting still to observe all that mother nature has laid out for us to see. From sitting still I have come to believe that deep dives into the wilderness are essential for the soul. The joy of sitting still and diving deep brought me to scouring, scrutinizing, and collecting small found objects in nature. My current work focuses on the petite with meaning making always nearby. I bring small objects into focus with my photography and sculpture and invite them to tell a story .
