Art Villa Garikula in Georgia organizes every year Fest I Nova, a festival for contemporary art. Teams were invited to Fest I Nova to build pavilions. Dirk van Lieshout designed and build the Dutch pavilion. I was asked to make a work around his pavilion. Bivouac is a work that makes it possible for people to actually be around the pavilions, to live there. During the build up and the first days of the festival I created a complete camp and lived there, with places to sleep, work and shit. On the second picture the pavilion of Dirk van Lieshout is shown in the background.
Bivouac has been supported by CBK Rotterdam.
Interesting about Garikula is that art is a used as a tool to create a model for a society, based around the villa.
