Art in the Grounds

/
The Grafenegg castle grounds, revitalised in 2008, are a prime example of the development of the European landscape park. In the past few years, the tradition of the grounds has been brought to the present. A new place for art and culture has been created which is open to the public.

Set against the backdrop of Grafenegg Castle, one of the most important historicist buildings in Austria, a total of eight artists were invited by the jury of Kunst im öffentlichen Raum Niederösterreich to critically examine the role attributed to art in staging and representing. May 2017, the art ensemble was completed by three new temporary objects:

Simon Faithfull «Earth-Spin no.1: Grafenegg», 2017

Elisabeth Penzer «Composition With One Twisted Tone», 2017

Franz Kapfer «Mein Drama findet nicht mehr statt, # Akt 1–3», 3 installations, 2017
