    Marc Walter - Canada

    PROPOSAL

    For the Children’s Labyrinth Project 2010, Marc Walter proposed an installation that would have two components:
    • a large chamber
    • one or several tall sculptures in the centre of that chamber
    The size and proportions of the chamber would be dictated by the spaces available in the Labyrinth as well as by his feelings while discovering the site.
     

     

     


    The chamber would be inspired by several of his previous installations, among which Le rêve du castor/Beaver’s dream (Canada), Sanctuarium (The Netherlands), La Chambre des probables/The Chamber of Odds (Perth, ON). The sculptures would be inspired by Peregrini/The Pilgrims (Derouin Foundation, QC), Les Porteurs d’eau/The Water Carriers (Biosphere, Montreal, QC), L’appel à la Création/Call to Creation (Wakefest, QC).

    But the artist left his process open enough for other ideas to emerge from his first walks within the Labyrinth.

    PROPOSAL

    LETTERS - SIGNS - MESSAGES

    Small size wooden signs with letters - e.g. Finnish, Swedish ,English, Russian - to create words which can hang on the trees around to show what you want to say- so you can assemble (install) words sentences and abracadabra depending of your mood, education, power of imagination even little kids are able to install MAMA and CAT -simple words that can be as a signs of a time and real people who d visited a labyrinth.

     

     

     

     

    It has to be done simple funny and easy to use, it will invite children to change the surrounding every time they come and through their words they communicate with the others coming another time.

    Rumen Dimitrov - Bulgaria

    PROPOSAL

    With Dancing Figures Project the artist intends to create a totally natural, ephemeral works with natural materials, like stones, wood and branches , also works who are easy to play the children with them, so if you touch the figures to shake or move and to be interested to play with them.
    The project will represent three figures about 1m x 1m x 3m each situated on the field.

    Because the base is heavy and with half ball form the figure will be movable and shakes from the wind or if somebody from visitors play with them.
    If there is not big dimensions stones for base for figure (about 1m x 1m x 40 cm) the bases can made with concrete, three holes in the sand ground in the form of half ball will be made and will felled with concrete and metal construction for the figure. On the top( 3 meters about) wooden head will be put and after one week can use the dry already concrete base for stand up the figures.

    Main focus is on the essence of how people relate to each other, space, the environment they are in, influence of time, history, culture and how these change and interrelate to each other.
    In that case I enjoy working with people and groups ( especial children) in the process of making art.

    David Kochavi - Israel

    PROPOSAL

    The proposed artwork for the Children Labyrinth of David Kochavi  is an installation.
    It is built of long straight (mostly) and curved branches. The joints will be made by hidden screws, covered by a (natural) rope. The structure will have thin long "legs". The "floor" of the structure will be higher (2.0 - 2.5m) than the children height.

    The work may attract the children because it will be mysterious and look like "something" taken from their imaginary world. It may be a huge beast/insect (but, attached to the ground!). At the same time, this structure could remind the children of a strange habitation, a cage, a guarding facility (to guard nature?), a wooden spaceship – captured and attached to the ground…and so on.

    In its sculptural language, this structure is, mainly, a bunch of vertical lines
    (A forest – as a nature symbol) carrying a floating big object high above.

    This kind of work is suitable for realization in cooperation with children and teachers and I will be happy to create it with them.

    Curator of this symposium is the sculptor Lucien den Arend living and working in Kangasniemi.
    A.I.E.S.M. manager for Finland.
