“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 studio rooms into the big hall at Schaumbad¹, 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 consisted of 80 cm long cases full of flowers arranged along the corridor, measuring the 40 m exit path to the new emergency door. The perspective decrease in size made the length of 40m imaginable.
¹ here you find a foto how the hall looked when it was empty.
“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 sensor cameras the nightlife of mice could be depicted.
