10th international festival of landscape objects ARCHSTOYANIE, demonstrating the most unexpected and unusual environment and landscape solutions, expands its horizons, moving to the territory of the neighbouring Zvizzhi village this year.
There, the festival’s guests will be able to plunge into the magic and mysterious atmosphere created by giant art objects among beautiful nature. Presently, there are more than seventy art objects at the Archstoyanie territory. Many of them are built using the latest multimedia technologies to convey ideas of the artist.
For example, walking through the forest, visitors will meet a keyboard instrument and a human figure, made of twigs and grass. The art object is called The Voice of the Forest, because it ‘sings’ like exotic birds.
Besides, there will be a lot of music at the festival. On Saturday night Swedish duet JJ, Tom Hawk from the US and Frenchman High Wolf will perform. On Sunday, there will sound Russian experimental music: Silent Stones project, Dadaisme and other young musicians. In addition, Studio of experimental sound and multimedia technologies Soundartist.ru joined Archstoyanie this time. It will prepare installations and a night concert at a special quadraphonic stage.
