Horizons, open air exhibition, offers the possibility to dive in the heart of varied artistic worlds. When discovering these unusual artworks at the bend of a trail, the top of a volcano, in the middle of a lake or the edge of a fiery waterfall, your imagination will be completely carried away. Each year, hundreds of artists from all over the world participate in this event.

Architect Louis Sicard living in Spain worked with the French Baptiste Bonijoly to create a project called Portes de l’Espace.  A series of 8 wooden doorways tethered to the ground with light foundations erected on the Plaines Brûlées [burnt plains] plateau. These gateways opening up to a vast emptiness, which gives us something to think about, such as the meaning of space.
