From 1997 to 2003 the German artist Hannsjörg Voth lived in the southern desert of Morocco where he designed, self-funded and built several land-art works. The most prominent is the “City of Orion”, a monumental piece which synthesizes the artist’s interest in incorporating the symbolic and the mythical dimension in his production.
