• Nella Golanda

    Landscape Sculptor

Since 1972 Nella Golanda, Landscape Sculptor (Athens School of Fine Arts, First honorary member of the Pan-Hellenic Association of Landscape Architects 2008) has applied “TOTAL ART” in public spaces, re-establishing in human scale the relation between nature and historical landscape, aiming to regenerate life to the contemporary metropolitan cities. The visitors are guided to experience new different ways and develop new social relations in public spaces. These “live” sculptures function as interactive experimental landscapes where the creation of new art genres in possible. Art gets out of the museums and becomes a part of everyday life.
