This year, Yatoo-i invited their artist members from around the world to join their Winter Workshop, which has been taking place in Korea since 1981. Each in our own countries made our way into wild natural places between 21st and 23rd January, to  connect with the Earth  and pay our respects. This fascinating video demonstrates without words the artists’ feeling of being as one, all part of the Earth.

The Korean folks finished their workshop with a delicious traditional Korean meal in a famous restaurant, all together. You can find out more about YATOO-i  on this link.

The Korean Nature Art Association YATOO has a distinctive theoretical framework where artists and nature interact as equal partners. The artists’ actions are often fleeting or short-lived, but their resonances can extend far beyond the time of the activity.   Since 2011, YATOO has expanded to include a rapidly growing international network of artists (YATOO -i) – all of whom share a deep concern for our natural environment, our home.

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.
