Gorodka

Village d'Art Singulier 4 km from Sarlat

Gorodka unusual art village

Gorodka part of the Singular Art itinerary (with the Palais du Facteur Cheval)

"If there was a tourism Lépine competition, it should be awarded to Peter Shasmoukinea multi-talented artist and founder of a village imagined from scratch near Sarlat. The 2-hectare estate on which it is set is no optical illusion: eight art galleries, light trails, over 500 works of art to contemplate, workshops, artists-in-residence and atypical accommodation have all taken their place. Armed with his two arms, Pierre Shasmoukine did it all himself. The whole affair took him some forty years. At this stage, it's fair to say that nothing is foreign to him. He's a brilliant jack-of-all-trades, hilarious and no doubt unmanageable, but he deserves to be known. By turns painter, poet, sculptor, "transsocial" animator, sometimes farmer, sometimes "anarchitect", and why not both at the same time, in 1978 he created the first NGO on what was not yet called sustainable development. In '84, he opened the first public gallery in a rural setting, a prelude to a whole series of events, plastic follies and giant luminescent sculptures. Including a Mirage4 and a helicopter turned dragonfly.... Journalist Denise Cabelli.
