Sense and Sustainability. Urdaibai Art 2012

From July the 21st to September 23rd, the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve (Basque Country) will serve as the scene of the international contemporary art project Sense & Sustainability, curated by
Alberto Sánchez Balmisa and organized by the Fundación 2012 Fundazioa. Sense & Sustainability will include 10 site specific installations developed by 10 international artists.

The list of participant artists includes:
Lara Almarcegui (Zaragoza, Spain, 1972) , Liam Gillick (Aylesbury, UK, 1964), Carlos Irijalba (Pamplona, 1979), Gunilla Klingberg (Stockholm, Sweden, 1966), Maider López (Donostia, Spain, 1975), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (México DF, México, 1967), Renata Lucas (Ribeirão Preto, Brasil, 1971), Oscar Tuazon (Tacoma, USA, 1975), Pieter Vermeersch (Kortrijk, Belgium, 1973) and Haegue Yang (Seoul, South Korea, 1971).

Every one of them has developed site specific works in very different urban, industrial and natural spaces that investigate critically not only about the Urdaibai's physical territory and social, cultural and economic development, as well as the more traditional concepts used for the art in public spaces.

Please note that due to the complicated access to some of the installations, we recommend you to bring sport shoes or similar. The organization will supply a bus service linking the different works, but in any case some walks will be required.
