About the first Hybridart International Art Camp:
In August 2016, Hybridart Management organized the first international Hybrid Art Camp in Pannonhalma in collaboration with Etihad Modern Art Gallery (Abu Dhabi), the Millenary Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma and Vis Vitalis mineral water. The international artists team built a 4 meter high dinosaur statue, out of 4000 plastic bottles.
The gigantic outdoor installation was created by students of Hungarian, Slovak, Czech, Polish and Emirati art universities. The construction was coordinated by hungarian university professors and sculptors: Gergő Kovách and György Szász.
The dinosaur statue was exhibited first in Pannonhalma, then in Budapest for two weeks at Vigadó Square (Danube Promenade), which was followed by the exhibition at the Abu Dhabi Art Fair in November 2016.
