Labyrinth at the Lehen Park Salzburg 2016

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”.

Log Labyrinth Gutshof Glanegg Salzburg 2015

Temporarily in the manor Glanegg, Salzburg: Log Labyrinth. Finding the centre.

A conversation evening on the subject Labyrinth, with Susanna Andreini:
Labyrinth walking – exhibition – interview – public conversation.

From the invitation:
You are warmly invited to an experience of particular kind. Come, walk and experience the labyrinth and take part afterwards in our exciting labyrinth-conversation evening!
With Marianne Ewaldt I introduce a very respected artist’s colleague, one of Salzburg’s powerful and warm-hearted women! In her artistic works she reflects upon universe, matter and form. She has interpreted labyrinths in different ways, and has conquered the public space with her projects, recently with the implementation of the mirror octagon after a sketch of Leonardo da Vinci.

This evening you will learn what labyrinth experiences have to do with the chakras, the Percival history and healing paths.

Light and Shade Stadtgalerie Lehen Salzburg 2015

Town gallery Lehen Salzburg

The basis of my ceramic works is to constantly extend the idea: To use less and less material to give more and more space for transparency, light and shade.

Now I was invited by Dr. Margit Zuckriegl to the subject “Licht _Schatten” together with three other artists, M.E.Prigge, Anja Ronacher and Gerlinde Zantis to present my new objects in the town gallery Lehen at Salzburg.

Labyrinth of Transformation Bechtoldvilla Salzburg 2014/2015

Walkable labyrinth from dressing

Marianne Ewaldt / Elfriede Hufnagl / Christiane Pott-Schlager

On the green area of the ART BV Bechtoldvilla, Salzburg, a walkable Classical 7 path labyrinth has been realised from 200 metres of dressing,  i.e. cotton cloths with colour tracks and tracks of decomposition, and metal buttons to anchor them into the ground.
Diameter approx. 12 m

Time frame: The labyrinth will be finished and ready to be walked for the vernissage of „DER MENSCH IM MITTELPUNKT“ in November 2014. They could remain lying there over the winter months until the spring of the following year, and by tramping and mowing the paths even remain visible for a longer time. In the course of time the cloths will sink into the earth. What remains, is a lawn labyrinth; therefore the nature is a perfect place of transformation.

The Labyrinth inside the Cube of the Flower of Life Salzburg 2014

Labyrinth inside the cube of the flower of life in 2014
An order for a private garden in Salzburg
Material / technology: Stainless steel, laser supported, varnished in 3 colours, 65 cm high, installed in a distance of 7 cm on the wall.

One day when Erwin and Uschi Reissmann visited me in Salzburg, I asked Erwin whether he could find the labyrinth in the geometrical structure „of the flower of life“ whose contents employed me already longer and which already stimulated Leonardo da Vinci at that time to sketches – and thanks Erwin – he discovered really the labyrinth inside it! The cube also appeared, the symbol of the element earth in accordance to the Platonic Solids, so to speak, as a side effect

Hence, it was a big joy for me, to install this special energy object with varied symbolic salary in this beautiful green living room.

The Labyrinth inside the Mirror Octagon 2012

Romanesque cellar of the hypo-bank of Salzburg
Being in the centre, 2012 – walk-on-able environment – mirror, gold on wood, floor print, diameter: 2.76 m, height: 2 m

The mirror octagon created by Marianne Ewaldt was for the first time to be explored at the Romanesque cellar of the hypo-bank of Salzburg from June 15 to 29 in 2012.
Then it was featured on the 6. International labyrinth congress at Hofkirchen i.M. (Lower Austria) in an exhibition in the city hall in August 2012.
Now it has found its place in the Villa Sinnenreich at Rohrbach and can visited there at the usual visiting hours.

The subject is: Being in the centre. A Classical labyrinth is put on the ground inside an octagon with mirrored walls. The idea to that was a sketch of Leonardo Da Vinci (1452 – 1519) which could not be realised, however, at his time.

It’s a thrilling experience to discover in such surroundings the middle of the octagon, the labyrinth and ones own centre. Since one finds oneself often reflected, but on no account restricted or depressed as one might guess. The space is getting light and far. It’s another way in the labyrinth on searching oneself.
