TEN MORE HELLO WOOD INSTALLATIONS TO TOKAJ

0

Ten installations have been set up under the Hello Wood project in the villages of Erdőbénye, Erdőhorváti, Olaszliszka, Szegilong, Vámosújfalu and the town of Tokaj this year. Hello Wood is an international educational platform in design and architecture that has run summer schools for university students of architecture and fine arts in the Tokaj region since 2017. Their installations are intended to be permanent additions to Tokaj's UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Landscape, yet, they are likely to fall to decay in a few years' time due to lack of proper preservation and maintenance. This is, however, nothing to worry about, because, while some look good and have actual function, such as the footbridge in Olaszliszka, many are of questionable artistic or aesthetic value. An example for the latter is the 'Boomerang', supposedly a 'lookout bridge' over the Bénye in Erdőbénye, which only provides a glimpse of the waterway underneath and a good view of (but no access to) a fairly disorganised part of Csite winery's garden across the stream.
