The young Austrian artist Alfredo Barsuglia born in Graz, Austria with Italian roots, will present his exhibition in the Bell Tower on Schlossberg Mountain, Graz (AUT) in the exhibition series ‘Visiting Schlossberg Mountain’ 2019 starting from 11th October until 09th of November 2019.
The installation titled ‘Horizon’ will transform the local landmark Bell Tower Graz into a Sea side lieux which upon entering makes us feel being in a different remote surrounding.
From a sea side sun down through a level of maps and nautical equipment towards a star constellation, invented by the artist Alfredo Barsuglia himself, we discover the Bell Tower anew.
In the framework of Barsuglia’s exhibition the first installation of the Sculpture Garden at the river Mur will be realised on the banks of the river in Graz under the title ‘Time jump’, 2019-2040 which presents the artist’s invitation to revisit the site where a five year old tree will be planted this October 2019, in 2040 when he will be creating a little drawing in the birch of the tree. As we discussed with dry sense of humour: ‘If we and the tree will still be alive’. ‘Definitely planning on it’ we decided. Exact date of the planting scheduled for this October 2019 will follow.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the Bell Tower and Barsuglia’s performance and all my best for a relaxing summer,
