L'OBSERVATOIRE made during the Artist-in-Residence in Beaulieu-lès-Loches, France.

The body of work of Akunzo consists of ephemeral, site-specific projects. Each project has a strong commitment to the site and the environment as a whole. Projects are a reflection on a site or the history of a place, and often deal with concerns about the future of the planet. Akunzo works right on the site and often uses natural materials from the vicinity such as branches or earth. Sometimes unnatural elements related to the subject of the work are added. The combination of place and artwork is meaningful for Akunzo. They reinforce each other and together they form the project. That connection between site and what is made on the site, that's what it's all about. The observer experiences the project as a whole, possibly generating a new view, a new meaning or awareness.
