  1. 1. The ridge Saksalanharju is situted on the biggest monolith of Europe. Registration number: MOR-Y06-049 Types: drumlin Height: 168 meter Length: 5 499 meter Width: 1 600 meter Saksalanharju is together with the original village of Haukivuori = Haukivuori kirkonkylä an official protected national heritage, because of the drumlin, the landscape and the historical value. The area on the monolith and around is full of swamps and still peat cutting is important. The swamp fields are remarkable areas in the landscape. When the roots of old trees are put on piles it gives a mysterious feeling. In the swamps in Tuulimiemi are the anual volleyball games. Agriculture and forestry are the main activities on Saksalanharhuju. The hill is one of most fruitfully of the area.

  9. 9. VIA.ARS.NATURA, the way to art and nature OBJECTIVES AREFS taide ja kulttuuri ry is planning VIA.ARS.NATURA, the way to art and nature a program to develop new facilities and actions in the countryside and to develop a network of people living near old (historic) routes in the hinterland of the main roads and start a co-operation with professional (international) artists. Through the program, the cultural environment will undergo a development initiative and will also have an influence on (international) visitors and travelers with cultural and ecological interests. lucien den arend - dordrecht - nl VISION The program VIA.ARS.NATURA will be an overall and wide-range program of nationally and internationally significant artworks along old (historic) routes and paths in the countryside. These art works will be grown or made from the ingredients/elements of, or specifically related to the landscape and geology of the area. The use of these different components, like forests, plants, peat, earth, rock(s) and water will visualize the characteristics of nature and authentic roads in South-East Finland. A commission program will ensure that the artworks link up to form a complete and coordinated idea and project. The program will help to improve bio-diversity and to create new habitats and utilize green and sustainable processes for procurement and methods of working wherever possible. The plan is based on the strategy to strengthen the cultural and natural image of the rural area. The plan will be executed in different parts over a period of years. http://www.arefs.org/projects/via-ars-natura.html
  10. 10. VIA•ARS•NATURA, the way to art and nature – pilot project MIKKELIPUISTO and SAKSALANHARJU - OBJECTIVES The working group – MIKKELIPUISTO and SAKSALANHARJU - is planning an art plan in the region of Mikkeli as a part of the main project VIA.ARS.NATURA . The pilot-project is based on nature and art in Mikkelipuisto and Saksalanharju. The purpose of this sub-project is to develop on the two locations in Mikkeli and Haukivuori an attractive environment through art and nature for different target groups. The project will give added value to the area of the new gardens and the forest- LABYRINTH with temporary and permanent nature and site specific art. The project is based on the need to integrate art in landscape and in the personal living environment and to involve people with new forms of landscape design and the added value of art in it. Environmental art has no barriers like art in museums, people don't have to open to art, but art opens to people. This project will contribute to the cultural diversity of the region and increase the number of (international) visitors. Through this project Mikkeli can distinguish itself – not only through its nature – but also by way of art and design.
  11. 11. VIA•ARS•NATURA, the way to art and nature – pilot project MIKKELIPUISTO and SAKSALANHARJU - CONTENT The works in the project can be created for short or long term - as temporary or permanent works - integrated and site specific. The area can be enriched with long-term planted and growing artwork, designed to fit in with the existing native trees and other plants. There are many possibilities for this kind of art works like trees being woven, pleached, grafted and pruned into living sculpture. Areas of trees and/or bushes planted to form graphic shapes. Grass used to create visual images. Waterways altered with stone and trees. Earthworks and land shaping (landscaping) used as constructive elements. Landscape structures and planting which can give direction to the visitor. Temporary works can may be pre-existing, commissioned or invited for exhibition and relate specifically to the landscape or geology of Etelä-Savo, for instance sculptures that could be sited to draw attention to the agriculture or glacial history in the area. Conservation, bio-diversity and habitat are also items that can be included in the art works.
  12. 12. VIA•ARS•NATURA, the way to art and nature – pilot project MIKKELIPUISTO and SAKSALANHARJU - Mikkelipuisto Mikkelipuisto Park is an entity under construction right near the centre of Mikkeli, and the aim is to turn it into the leading centre for horticultural tourism in Eastern Finland. In the park join the area's varied nature, the recreation areas and the model gardens planned and built by companies. Together these will constitute a high-class visiting attraction for amateurs, professionals, and tourists. The total area of the park that will develop on the lands of the town amounts to 42 hectares. Mikkelipuisto will be an important cultural attraction without an equal in Finland. The workgroup has applied for funding to realize the exhibition 2009, unfortunately without result. Thanks to some companies the exhibition in 2009 has been supported for the transport of the sculptures and through the artists by making their works available for free. . http://www.arefs.org/projects/mikkelipuisto-saksalanharju.html
  13. 13. VIA•ARS•NATURA, the way to art and nature – pilot project MIKKELIPUISTO and SAKSALANHARJU - Saksala ArtRadius Art centre Saksala ArtRadius has the expertise for organizing art symposiums, art commissions and art programs for professional artists. There is a growing international network of art organizations in which Saksala ArtRadius participates. The art centre is also a pioneer of innovative art and cultural tourism. The organization is developing a combination of programs, tenders, projects and events in the field of art and culture for a range of target groups of different cultures and ages. The location on Saksalanharju is becoming a unique cultural area and a meeting point for local and regional people and international visitors for involvement with art, artists, and art activities. The art centre is creating the tools for improving the cultural reputation of the whole region. http://www.arefs.org/projects/mikkelipuisto-saksalanharju.html varol topaç - turkey marijke bongers – the netherlands
  14. 14. VIA•ARS•NATURA, the way to art and nature – pilot project MIKKELIPUISTO and SAKSALANHARJU - exhibition 2009 In 2009 selected sculptures from Lucien den Arend, Kari Huhtamo and from Saksala ArtRadius (Yildiz Güner, Mari Shields, Jaak Hillen and Veli Blakçori) will be present in the first summer exhibition. Lucien den Arend also has designed a temporary landart project in the field. . http://www.arefs.org/projects/mikkelipuisto-saksalanharju.html
  15. 15. VIA.ARS.NATURA, the way to art and nature a cultural road Haukivuori-route: Karhuntie-Lemettilänte-Taulumäentie OBJECTIVES This phase of the project will be focused on the realization of some art works near the route and with the promotion of local products of the involved farmers. It is the intention to co-operate with the people living in this part of Saksalanharju/Lietjärvi to bring their culture to the attention of visitors, tourists and regional people. In the pilot-project we will start with practical executions on a part of the old road Haukivuori-Mikkeli, Karhuntie-Lemettiiäntie-Taulumäentie. This road starts just after the junction towards Kalvitsa and ends on the Saksalantie. The route passes the monolith Saksalanharju, the characteristic fields of Lietjärvi, art centre Saksala ArtRadius and carpenter RISLAPUU. The project did not get funding for the moment.
  16. 16. VIA.ARS.NATURA, the way to art and nature a cultural road Ensimmäinen vaihe – pilottihanke Haukivuori: Karhuntie – Lemettiläntie – Taulumäentie Hankkeen ensimmäisessä vaiheessa keskitytään muutaman taideteoksen toteuttamiseen ja mukana olevien asukkaiden tuotteiden esittämiseen. Pilottihankevaiheessa haluamme aloittaa käytännön toteutuksen vanhalla Haukivuori – Mikkeli tieosuudella: Karhutie – Lemettiläntie – Taulutie. Tämä tie alkaa heti Kalvitsaan vievästä tienristeyksestä ja päättyy Saksalantielle. Tämä reitti ylittää Saksalanharju-monoliitin: Lietjärven luonteenomaiset pellot, Saksala ArtRadius- taidekeskuksen ja RISLAPUU puuseppäverstaan * Yhdessä paikallisten asukkaiden kanssa haluamme tutkia ja dokumentoida tälle maaseutualueelle ominaisia luonnoon ja kulttuuriin liittyviä piirteitä. Tälläisia ovat esim. pellot, aidat, kiviaidat, heinäseipäät ja -paalit , puupinot ja juurakkokasat jne. , sekä pihapiirit ja tallentaa ne tietokantaan. *Paikallisten ryhmittymien kanssa aloitamme kehittää ideoita, tuotteita, osallistumis - ja avustustapoja, jotka voivat olla osa tämän reitin identiteettiä. *Tutkimme, onko mahdollista tuoda maisemaan paikkasidonnaista taidetta ja ympäristötaidetta, jotka kiinnittäisivät ohikulkijan huomio perinteelliseen maan- ja metsänviljelyyn, ja saman aikaisesti, nykytaiteeseen. *Pilottihankkeen aikana on tärkeää, että eri ihmiset voivat kehittää ideoita ja osaltaan myötävaikuttaa siihen, että uusia elementtejä syntyy heidän omaan ympäristöönsä. * Muille asukkaille tulemme järjestämään esityksiä hankkeen kehityksestä ja yhteisön osallistumisen myötä tuoda nykytaidetta lähemmäksi ihmisiä. Tulemme ottamaan myös koulut mukaan projektiin. *Pilottihankkeen aikana etsimme rahoitusta jatkotoimenpiteille. sekä VIA.ARS.NATURA taideluontoreittihankkeen aloittamista ja toteuttamista varten. *Lopuksi pilottihanke julkaistaan suomeksi ja englanniksi nettisivuilla (jotka täytyy vielä rakentaa), jotta tulos on kansainvälisen yleisön nähtävissä. *Pilottihanke mahdollistaa sen, että aitoon suomalaiseen maalaisympäristöön voidaan kehittää reitti, jonka varrella on pysyviä nähtävyyksiä. *Osana pilottihankkeeseen kuuluu etsiä innovatiivisia ympäristötaideprojekteja ulkomailta ja kehittää samanlaisten projektien kansainvälinen verkosto. Tämän pilottihankeen puitteisiin ei kuulu tutustua näihin kohteisiin. Myöhäisemmässä vaiheessa muutamiin näistä voidaan tutustua paikan päällä.

Artists from Nordic countries exchange and collaborate with artists from Europe. The artists meet each other on the same crossroad. It is this crossing that identifies the impact of place on an artist’s practice. CROSSROADS SAKSALANHARJU will be carried out in art centre Saksala ArtRadius, Haukivuori, Finland. This project will start in August 2009 with the first collaboration session between Ilse van den Berk and Tiina Suhonen. the project is already funded by: haukivuoren aluejohtokunta

  19. 19. crossroads SAKSALANHARJU a new collaborative project for international artists In the pilot-project CROSSROADS SAKSALANHARJU, migrant and native artists from Nordic countries and Europe will exchange and collaborate with each other. This will challenge them to cross the boundaries in their work and experience new influences. This crossing identifies the impact of place on an artist’s practice. New forms of expression and communication are anticipated to produce intense dialogue that the professional artists will communicate verbally and visually. The atmosphere in landscape and climate, and the mood and attitude of the people living more or less isolated in the country side in the NORDIC region will offer the specific impressions to the artists. The large monolith SAKSALANHARJU was already for hundreds of years a significant mark in the landscape where travelers crossed from different directions. The project initiates through art production by collaborating migrant and native artists the attention to the unique exploring of the NORDIC region. In this project, it is interesting that the national heritage SAKSALANHARJU will be viewed through the eyes of professional observers of different origin with the specific goal to shape a concrete impression. By borrowing the eyes of an outsider, locals can see their culture and landscape in a new light and from a different angle. This project will stimulate Nordic cultural exchange and increase awareness of historical and cultural knowledge in a Nordic context. It will develop democratic access to cultural participation, also for rural areas. With the contribution from different funds the exchange and collaboration of migrant Nordic artists will create new forms of expression and communication. It is this migration what is important to develop the specific historic and culture value of the Nordic rural areas. Think global and act local is reformulated in this project: act locally, but with a global effect. haukivuoren aluejohtokunta

  21. 21. TRIANGLE ROCK PROJECT MAIN OBJECTIVES The Dutch cultural organization AllaprimA Foundation is planning to initiate co-operation with art residency partners from Turkey, Spain and Finland at site specific, rural rock environs. The final aim is to create a European network to investigate and exchange, collaborate and produce international multidisciplinary dialogue in new forms of art production on exceptional European locations.. TURKEY SPAIN FINLAND The co-operation is based on practical working with the same intention under similar conditions with different specifics. The partners are existing and equipped residencies, small and personal, located in ecological sensitive environments, with original solutions for art production and a close relationship with the local society.

  22. 22. TURKEY The environment of Cappadocia (Central Turkey) is part of the Silk Road and a unique shaped landscape with historical decorated rock churches and pigeon houses cut in volcanic tufa stone. Cappadocia is an UNESCO world heritage site with open-air museums like underground cities and authentic historical villages, where inhabitants still live the farmer life of hundreds of years ago.
  23. 23. SPAIN The natural environment of the high Catalan Pyrenees Mountains - defined by woods with both conifers and deciduous trees, hay fields, steep pastures and craggy rocks - combines with the authenticity of the cultural, architectural and social heritage. Farrera is the highest village in the Coma de Burg and the first of many written references to Farrera’s existence dates back over 1,000 years, but the original human settlement was undoubtedly founded well before then.
  24. 24. FINLAND The national heritage SAKSALANHARJU- KIRKONKYLÄ, located on the biggest monolith of Europe, is an ancient settlement site. Saksala is an old neighborhood with tranquil landscape, designed with fields, forests and lake. The authentic rural area has a pure and traditional culture, based on agriculture and forestry.
