Labyrinth of silence / Labirint tišine

Labyrinth of silence
Labirint tišine

[en] On the meadow under Mali Kamenjak, rocky hill near Grobnik (Rijeka, Croatia), we made a geoglyph. The silence was a dominant experience in its construction, so we decided to name it “the labyrinth of silence”. Labyrinth’s diameter is nearly 8 meters and it represents only the first phase of a much larger “meditation path” in the flower form.

[hr] Na livadi pod Malim Kamenjakom, stjenovitim brdom u blizini Grobnika kraj Rijeke, napravili smo jedan geoglif. Tišina je bila dominantno iskustvo pri njegovoj gradnji, pa smo ga odlučili nazvati “labirintom tišine”. Promjera je skoro 8 metara i predstavlja samo prvu fazu puno veće “staze meditacije” u obliku cvijeta.

Geoglyph “Flower under Učka”
Geoglif “Cvijet pod Učkom”

[en] Geoglyph “Flower under Učka” is made by our group on the pasture near the old village Mala Učka on the mountain Učka. There were nine of us, and therefore the flower has nine petals. Everyone is in the creation of his petal entered his own personality so they are not all equal nor symmetrical. In the center of the geoglyph is “a pestle” in the form of a pillar of rocks. Geoglyph diameter is about 8 m.

[hr] Geoglif “Cvijet pod Učkom” je napravila naša skupina na pašnjaku u blizini starog sela Mala Učka na planini Učki. Bilo nas je devet, pa tako i cvijet ima devet latica. Svatko je u stvaranje svoje latice unio svoju osobnost tako da nisu sve međusobno jednake niti simetrične. U središtu geoglifa je “tučak” u obliku stupa od kamenja. Promjer geoglifa je oko 8 m.

Labirint “Vrata svemira” na Učki

[en] On two occasions in October 2014 we went to the mountain Učka (Croatia) near the abandoned village Petrebišća under mythical hill Perun, and there we built the labyrinth and mandalas of materials from nature. For inspiration we used my labyrinth of salt in which I had exhibited paintings from the cycle Mystical numbers a few years ago. View photos of construction of the labyrinth and mandalas in the gallery below.

[hr] Ovaj labirint smo izgradili kao dio svjesnog bivanja u prirodi na mitskom Perunu na Učki prema mojem nacrtu labirinta “Vrata svemira” kojeg sam prije nekoliko godina složio od soli u jednoj dvorani te su u njemu bile izložene moje slike iz ciklusa “Mistični brojevi”. Još smo jednom posjetili ovo mjesto hodom preko Balina i dogradili labirint sa “zemljanim mandalama”.

Land Art & Rock Art Gallery

Land art & Rock art

[en] This is a growing gallery with the images of land art and rock art made by me and my aides. Land art or earth art is an art style in which landscape and the work of art are inextricably linked. It is also an art form that is created in nature, using natural materials such as soil, rock (bed rock, boulders, stones), organic media (logs, branches, leaves), and water. Sometimes foreign or artificial materials and paint are introduced. The works frequently exist in the open, located well away from civilization, left to change and erode under natural conditions. Besides the artistic value, land art is often characterized by very contact with nature – touching the stone, wood and earth with bare hands.

Find out more about land art and some of its various forms: geoglyphs, petroforms, rock art, petroglyphs, pictograms and labyrints on provided links to Wikipedia.

Browse through my gallery bellow, pick land art you are drawn to, enlarge the image and see more details and photos by clicking on provided link.

[hr] Ovo je rastuća galerija s fotografijama land arta i rock arta koje sam stvarao sam ili s pomoćnicima. Land art ili earth art je umjetnički pokret u kojem su krajolik i umjetničko djelo neraskidivo povezani. To je umjetnička forma koja je stvorena u prirodi, koristeći prije svega prirodne materijale nađene na licu mjesta (kamen, zemlja, pijesak, trupci, grane, lišće, voda…). Ponekad se unose i strani ili umjetni materijali i boja. Radovi često stoje na otvorenom, smješteni dalje od civilizacije, ostavljeni da se mijenjaju i raspadaju pod utjecajem prirodnih sila. Uz umjetničku vrijednost, land art često obilježava sam kontakt s prirodom – dodirivanje stijene, drveta i zemlje golim rukama.
