LAND ARTISTS
The pioneers


Land art is a tendency in contemporary art, using the setting and materials of nature (wood, earth, stones, sand, rock, etc.). Most often, the works are outside, exposed to the elements and subject to natural erosion; therefore, some have disappeared and leave behind only photographs and videos.
