A Village of Concrete Sculptures


by Dani Karavan

Negev Monument, Beersheva, Israel, 1963-1968

Sunlight, wind organs, water, desert, acacias, gray concrete, text, memory
A “village of concrete sculptures” covering an area of 10.000 square meters. This work, which dominates the whole desert plain around Beersheva, is Karavan’s first environmental site-specific sculpture, created at a time in which these concepts did not exist yet.
In this work, Karavan first used elements of nature and memory, which later became part of his artistic language, such as: sunlight, wind, water, trees and the history of the place.
