City Lights, final days at the Village

final day at the Village
Hooray, it has been accomplished; another fantastic Nomadic Village on Hohe Wand. We are happy-sad-exhausted! Thanks for being there and see you all next year, somewhere on the road.
Our next stop with the Galeria Nowhere will be on 29th of August, Stallungen Schloß Esterhazy, Eisenstadt, 9-12 a.m.
Our journey will continue till end of September. We will show the Galeria Nowhere in Graz, Styria and at the legendary Schmiede in Hallein.

final days at the village

our lovely village
Final days, and we are working hard on our beautiful sculpture of the Village.

For saturday we are inviting you for evening cocktails at 8, and together we'll watch as the sunlight disappears and our city lights start to show. Then you can snug up in our comfy cinema van Lufka, enjoy the Galeria Nowhere with works from the last 4000 km, write a love letter to an anonymus person, discover beautiful land- and huge mural-art and listen to stories from the road.
You are welcome to bring a tent and stay in the Village for the night.

wisdom tree

"wisdom tree" Installation 2015 with old books by tinski

The tree is a beautiful old whitethorn. It almost died after a heavy icestorm last winter. It's at least 150 years old and a perfect match for the collection of vintage books.

first goodbyes

the clocherty gang
It were a grief so brief to part with thee. Farewell.      
William Shakespeare

Saying a lot of goodbyes is one of the more uncomfortable parts of nomadic life. Today Elaine, Nellie and Banjo were leaving Nomadic Village to go back to Australia. They have spent 10 days in our big residency bus while Elaine was making a beautiful land art piece.

Lufka is back!
Nomadic Village is happy to be reunited with Lufka. This unique vehicle (a Ford E 300 from 1969) has been with the Captain from the very beginning of the Nomadic Village travels. From 2002 till 2007 it saw big parts of central-eastern Europe, towing a huge atelier/darkroom caravan and teaching us quite a few things about the advantages of a friendly appearance, and how needing mechanics can lead to very nice encounters....
After some years of hibernation it was restored to driving condition and rented out for some months in 2015. Now we are glad to have it back in our Village on Hohe Wand where Lufka will house Małgorzata Goliszewska.

some more details about Lufka.
