DAS SCHÖNSTE BLUMENDORF

“The village with the most beautiful flowers”, an installation for the exhibition “Topping out ceremony” at “Schaumbad – freies Atelierhaus Graz”, 2014.
At a certain time while building studiorooms into the big hall at Schaumbad ¹, the construction looked like a street in a village.
In rural areas of Austria a competition – which village is most beautifully decorated with flowers – is fought in summertime. This custom was the triggering point…
The installation consits of 80 cm long cases full of flowers arranged along the corridor, measuring the 40m exitpath to the new emergecy door. The perspective decrease in size makes the lengh of 40m imaginable.

¹ here you find a foto how the hall looked, when it was empty.

ALLE MEINE TIERE

“All my Animals” was an installation in the exhibition “Am Südrand” (At The Southern Edge), Schaumbad – freies Atelierhaus for steirischer herbst, 2014.
The Schaumbad is located in the industrial area of southern Graz, the exhibition was about reasearching the area.

The installation ” All my Animals” was about wildlife in the exhibition space (a 1100m2 huge hall where a bottling plant once was situated) With the help of sausages and sensorcameras the nightlife of mice could be pictured.
