THE ORGAN OF THE FIELD

The Artists’ Vineyard began as an idea by Guinovart on a piece of land once full of almond trees that we shaped and made ours. We imagined a green vineyard waving like a pirate ship, at times rhythmically following the notes of a saxophone, at others quiet and promising like a blank canvas. The Artists’ Vineyard is that, a space open to the wind so that it speaks through an organ of the field; a free place where someone with something to say can make it their own by seeding it with their own language. An agora for artistic expression merging with the land. A poor land, full of round stones, dry: perfect for a great wine.

The Artists’ Vineyard wants to be a tribute to those who once imagined it, Guino, and it is to him, to our friend, that we dedicate the year 0, the beginning, with his sculpture “L’Orgue de Camp” [The Organ of the Field] as an eternal witness.

“The Organ of the Field, an instrument so that the wind can sing to the vines…”

Opening. Year 0 party at the Artists’ Vineyard.
