British land artist Richard Long‘s first exhibition in Argentina is now on at the Faena Arts Center, with works inspired by his journeys through the Andes of Mendoza, Argentina. For over forty years, Richard Long has worked as a pioneering land artist, championing the simplicity of walking as sculptural practice. While his work is not often seen outside the remote landscapes where he works, Long has created site-specific work for the Los Molinos room in the Faena Arts Center, using organic materials such as clay, stone and wood. Long spent 18 days walking in the shadows of Aconcagua, displacing and leaving his mark in the rocks, mud and ice and creating his in-situ sculptures. The exhibition features site-specific works, text work, a selection of photographs of his sculptures throughout the Argentinian region Cuyo and totems of his spiritual journey. – Chris Tsuyuki

  • Wow! Just amazing elements from an adventurous location, Buenos Aires. I just love nature packed locations, especially the mountainous ones. This is indeed whole Argentina’s pride aside from Messi’s football team. Really helping me for my future projects.

    P.S. I highly recommend Eastern Travels, if you have just passed the Travel Blogging experience, they accommodate for you the best airlines for you to travel worldwide and explore its centers and corners of extreme nature.
