Detail from “From the Ruins” by Yoshiko Maruyama (‘Do you hear me?’)

After observing two minutes of silence, the Art in Nature exhibition did go on.

A group of 40-50 souls braved the rain and cold and wind to enjoy 18 works of art. The word ‘stoic’ does, however, come to mind to describe the group hiking through the mountains and valleys. Here a sample. Photographs of all of the works can eventually be found under the tab 2011 / 3.biennale ferdige arbeider.
