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 …

In 2017 and 2018 I visited a Domus de Janas (fairy house) in Sardinia, in which is a petroglyph showing the 7 circuit labyrinth. It is currently the oldest documented labyrinth depiction in the world.

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.
I am represented with my Mirror Labyrinth in the trout pond which was to be seen in 2001 in the park Hellbrunn – Salzburg as a temporary installation.

Vita Belavniece and Viesturs Serdāns reconstructed the labyrinth inside the mirror octagon in 2016 after a visit to the Villa Sinnenreich (Museum of Perception) in Rohrbach (Austria) at their facility in Valguma Pasaule.
