to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Vent des Forêts - hidden art

Along a small trail in the dense forest we find the surprising work of Lorentino  "cherchez cachée" meaning something like "look for hidden".  And indeed it is not obvious to spot this from a distance between the trees.

We saw this work the second day of our long forest walk and it is part of another we spotted the first day quite some distance from this one.

Le Vent des Forêts - Wind in the Forest

In July, six villages in the forest - in the Meuse region (France) - invite international artists to take a different look at nature and create works displayed along a 45- kilometre footpath through 5.000 hectares of forest. About 90 from the 165 works made since 1997 are still on the site.  Accessible every year from February until late September.
