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.
