Site-specific Installation by Yona Friedman
and Jean-Baptiste Decavèle

Contrada Rotacesta – Loreto Aprutino (Pescara)


Saturday may 14th, 2016 at 12.00 , Zerynthia Associazione per l’arte contemporanea, with the support by ARIA Foundation, with the artistic direction of Cecilia Casorati opens at Contrada Rotacesta di LoretoAprutino (Pescara) the site-specific installation No man’s land, by Yona Friedman and Jean-Baptiste Decavèle.

The installation is the largest ever made by Friedman: extending over two hectares of countryside, it is a tapestry made out of a huge amount of white river stones, a bamboo structure that recalls Friedman’s museum without walls and an imaginary dictionary carved by the artists into more than 200 walnut trees.

Since 2017 it is managed by the homonymous No Man’s Land Foundation, to which Mario Pieroni has donated the land of the installation. The purpose of the Foundation is to create a program not limited by the conservation and fruition of Friedman’s work, aiming  also to become a platform nourished by new initiatives developed to be realized in-situ.

Following Friedman’s participatory philosophy. the intent is to export the model of “non-property” in other places, inspiring and supporting a series of projects on the theme of the evolution of territorial culture.
