The RAINBOW project encompases companies and individuals, collaborating in the creation of a monumental art project, working together in solidarity to protect the environment and culture of Ladakh.

Inaugural in August 2012 / Project stopped in May 2012

DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT RAINBOW

The artwork :
« Rainbow » is a monumental site specific installation created by Sabine Fazekas, Land Artist (art in nature) that questions the human being and his relationship to the environment.


Performed on a 5400m pass in the Himalayas of Northern India, the work highlights the natural features and cultural values of the endangered region of Ladakh (a region classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, also known as « Little Tibet »).
Consisting of thousands of natural colored stones, « Rainbow » is a monumental work of art, measuring 3m high by 500m2, which requires three months of work on site. The walls will be constructed along the model of the Rainbow Body, which is the body of light, the ultimate completion of a Buddhist practice that reproduces the colors of the rainbow in the Self. To accomplish this, the work will encompass the Tso Moriri lake, situated below the village of Korzok, near the Chinese border (formerly Tibet).
