    • GORODKA, A "SINGULAR ART" VILLAGE TO DISCOVER IN THE DORDOGNE

      In the woods of the village of La Canéda, dive into the quirky universe of Pierre Shasmoukine, an extraordinary "multi-card" artist, creator of the Singular Art Village of Gorodka... This inspired "jack of all trades" dreamed and built his little Planet and invested it with his works: To visit Gorodka - which is one of the 30 places of Singular Art in France - with the Ideal Palace of the Postman Cheval - is to enter a world apart, far from hustle and bustle of the summer crowd

      GORODKA, AN AUTHENTIC VILLAGE OF ARTISTS IN PÉRIGORD

      You are guaranteed to get away from it all... In Gorodka, nothing is predictable: As soon as you arrive you will be surprised by the outdoor installations, but make no mistake about it, the real work of Pierre Shasmoukine's artist can be found in the galleries of art, with more than 600 works: Painting, sculpture, writing - Tenderness, Poetry, Onirism, Humor, Surrealism, Humorous Conceptual are there. From nightfall, 3 nature trails lead you to discover luminous works installed according to the inspiration and more or less crazy desires of Pierre Shasmoukine. Playful games for children and drawing spaces for budding artists, allow parents to visit quietly. Open in July / August from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Possibility to bring your picnic. From 8 p.m., free or guided visit of the Galleries (Tuesdays and Thursday evenings). Don't miss the illuminations as soon as night falls with the giant luminescent sculptures and the dragonfly helicopter that sparkles in the night. Gorodka is a very special village/museum that will appeal to the whole family.

      GORODKA, A VILLAGE IMAGINED 40 YEARS AGO BY AN EXCEPTIONAL ARTIST

      The atypical village of Gorodka is a unique place not to be missed. You can spend a few hours there, for an evening or a few days with the possibility of staying on site (gîte, and guest rooms) with these unusual rentals you can choose the chalet/duplex (80m2 for 4/5 people ) nestled in the woods and its large barbecue surrounded by works. You can also choose the studio (3 people) or small old artists' rooms with picnic area and outdoor kitchenette. Sleeping on site is ideal for escaping into the world apart from the planet Gorodka… The visit of the place and the Galleries is offered with each rental.

    Get off the beaten track, go and discover this place which has a true soul: an atypical place which will not leave you indifferent, created entirely by an extraordinary man, artist, avant-garde in many fields, self-taught. The visit is led by his sister who reveals many anecdotes. My two teenagers were impressed by this museum like no other. My only regret is not having discovered this place earlier during Pierre Shasmoukine's lifetime.

    This place is atypical, we visited it at night and we must see it again during the day, because between these two periods there is a total change

    The last English language review from 2017 described a bizzare visit, that ended with meeting the artist. Shasmoukine has since died, and according to the literature (and website) the venue is used...
