Record Type: concept
earthworks (sculpture) (environmental art, <visual works by material or technique>, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Artist works that manipulate natural earth and stone, altering the terrain of the land itself for artistic purposes. For large-scale outdoor works that otherwise exploit or incorporate aspects of their sites, use the more general term "environmental art." For the results of grading, trenching, or embanking earth, for utilitarian purposes, use "earthworks (engineering works)."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Gebruik deze term voor kunstwerken, soms tijdelijk van aard, vanaf het midden van de jaren zestig van de 20ste eeuw, die in en met de natuur tot stand zijn gekomen; soms met directe ingrepen, soms met meer immateriële ingrepen (bijvoorbeeld wandelingen) waarbij tijd en/of groeiprocessen een rol spelen. Veelal grote projecten die, als ze tijdelijk of immaterieel zijn, d.m.v. fotografie of film worden gedocumenteerd. Gebruik voor algemenere kunstwerken waarbij de omgeving wordt gebruikt 'omgevingskunst'. 
German ..... Werk, das natürliche Erde und Gestein benutzt und das Bodengelände für künstlerische Zwecke verändert. Für großformatige Werke im Freien, die auf andere Weise Aspekte ihres Standortes ausnutzen oder einfließen lassen, siehe den allgemeineren Begriff "Environment". Für die Ergebnisse des Einebnens, Aushebens und Eindämmens von Erde zu zweckmäßigen Zielen, siehe "Erdarbeiten (Bauarbeiten)". 
Spanish ..... Úsese para obras que manipulan tierra natural y piedras, alterando el terreno del mismo para propósitos artísticos. Para obras exteriores de gran escala que de otra manera aprovechan o incorporan aspectos de su emplazamiento, use un término más general "arte ecológico (obra)". Para el resultado de inclinar, trinchar o terraplenar tierra, para propósitos utilitarios, use "obra (obra de ingeniería)".
