2019 Kunst-Stoff

In Stadtgalerie Lehen Salzburg on March 27, 2019, 6 pm:

The Mystery of the Labyrinth


… the unknown god is the source of creative energy. The female goddess is the sun who donates light and warmth. It needs another divinity, the moon, the son-god, who can reflect his power over the world and keep his balance. This son must die regularly to be reborn with all of nature …

Organization and moderation: Gloria Zoitl

2018 Sharing Heritage: Labyrinths in Europe

The European cultural heritage year 2018 is an occasion for the Outdoor exhibition “Sharing Heritage: Labyrinths in Europe” which is shown from the 14th of April – 3rd of June, 2018 on the Schwarzenbergplatz in Vienna.

The Outdoor exhibition exists of a round labyrinth with five circuits (diameter: 33 m) which is put from 400 home ornamental plants and useful plants: Lilac, snowball, hazelnut, Pfaffenhütchen, privet and some small apple trees.

The 310-m-long way into the middle invites the guests to walk without ruffle and gives them the possibility to experience his oscillations and changes of perspective in a physical-sensual way. There is the ceramic sculpture “Nutshell” (implementation: Marie Janssen) and there sounds quiet music (Flora St. Loup).

In the outside advertising pillars show 40 different labyrinths of the European cultural history – from the historical mosaic up to the present art.

2016 Labyrinth at the Lehen Park Salzburg

Art project “Encounter Labyrinth”:

The Lehen park should receive a new cultural signature by an annual art project limited to the summer months.

The start for this year was  made by Marianne Ewaldt, Gian Piero Manca and Gloria Zoitl with an ensemble composed of a labyrinth and sculptures, in whose production schoolchildren and juveniles from the surroundings of the park were integrated.

The development of common thoughts for work and a personal relationship to idea and material were central to the interactive project „Encounter Labyrinth”.
