26. 7. / 11.00 / Žilina landscapes walk

Departure of the Bus: Stanica Žilina - Záriečie Trip guide: Milo Juráni   One country, three stops with different reflections. Nature is not only a fascinating mosaic of miscellaneous elements, different but interconnected layers. It is also an exciting reflection of its inhabitants´soul.The more we walk in nature, the more we feel that it is just another resemblance of ourselves. For the geologist Richard Wetter, nature is passion and inspiration. It is present in his work and writings, dreams and contemplations, even in his paintings. He will open the Sunday walk by narration about different layers of the country by touching its evolution from ancient history until now.   Tecto party of Zden Brungot Svíteková in collaboration with Matthew Rogers will be an immersion into the deep time of the Earth. Together with them we will explore how the innate processes of land imprint in our bodies and movement. Choreographic scores that will arise from this will be a physical study of geological situation, processes, past and possible future of the country. What is an orchard for you? For the visual artist with the background in forestry engineering Martin Piaček, orchard is a productive metaphor of an interaction between human life and time. It is a place that combines productivity with free time, benefit with beauty, work with contemplation, cultivation with donation, physical effort with aesthetic pleasure, parasites with crops. It creates a network of dynamic life situations and therefore offers fertile field for imagery of alternative realities
