Richard Long - Provencal stones and Vallauris clay
British artist Richard Long’s work is the result of the artist’s walks in nature and his appreciation for the surrounding landscape, an approach which lies behind many of the artworks at Château La Coste.
In the restored former wine store, two site-specific installations have been created, responding to the space and the surrounding environment. On the gallery floor, Long has made From Stone to Stone an installation using three kinds of provencal stones, and on the walls are Mistral Days, two large works in red clay from the region of Vallauris, the French capital of pottery and ceramic arts. This clay has been used numerous potters and artists from antiquity hrough to the modern era, including Pablo Picasso in the 1950s.
Exhibition from 24th July to end of October 2021
