Andrew Rogers 2006 land art sculpture ‘The Messenger’ has been included in “You are here: a beginner’s guide to land art” an essay by David Congram for the latest edition of Vault magazine. The essay discusses land art as one of the great art movements of the 20th century and considers its significance in a contemporary landscape.
Rogers created the Geoglyph ‘The Messenger’ in the Gobi Desert, China with 1000 soldiers from the Chinese Army. The Messenger comes from a drawing found near the geoglyphs in the tomb of an emperor of the Weijin Dynasty dating from 220-265AD.
