Between the year 9 and 10
The artist Erik Schmitz assambled, live, his work ‘REFUGI’ [Shelter], the culmination of a collaborative work started last year that has been permanently incorporated into the itinerary of The Artists’ Vineyard / Mas Blanch and Jové winery.
This sculpture aims, as its name suggests, to provide shelter. In this case, the representative form of a fox is intended to establish a link with local fauna. It is a symbolic act that involves the action of people to generate this space of protection. Be aware of the need for our gestures towards the environment to ensure that, through healthy coexistence, we maintain a rich ecosystem which has a positive impact on our well-being.
The sculpture is participatory and collaborative. Once the main structure was installed, the participants completed it with organic materials from the vineyard. The desire is to be respectful of the natural landscape and reflect on the ephemeral condition and the importance of acting and protecting with perseverance, the environment. It is a work that is changing and that allows infinite interactions.
Throughout the activity, 100% outdoors, there was musical accompaniment by Lauzeta. Lauzeta is a lark, a song of melodious song, in Occitan, the language of troubadours. Thus, nothing more and nothing less is how this folk duet from Lleida formed by Nuria García and Joan Baró delves into the magical and wonderful universe of Celtic music, to transport to every place where they play to the heart of Ireland with the help of their voices and instruments. Reels, jigs, tavern songs and intimate ballads, Lauzeta is synonymous with partying and good vibes!
