Group Description

Nahe Tafraoute (Anti-Atlas) in Marokko hat der belgische Maler Jean Vérame mit Hilfe der Feuerwehr auf einem großen Gelände die für Marokko typischen Steine bemalt. Nun bleichen sie langsam aus und es ist interessant, diesen Prozess zu verfolgen.

Travelmax says:
In 1984 the Belgian artist and a team of Morroccan firemen teamed up to create one of the most unusual art installation pieces on the face of the planet. Armed with 18 tonnes of blue, red, violet and white paint, they sprayed it all over the granite boulders and small hills of the Anti-Atlas mountains over the course of three months. Fortunately, King Hassan II thought it was a good idea, so it looks like they are there to stay until the paint wears off. Although they have lost their sharpness of colour, the fusion of art and nature is still mesmerising.
1984 Multidimensional work, at different sizes on a granit site at 1200 meters high, in the Anti-Atlas, near Tafraoute, Marocco.
