Janet Echelman builds living, breathing sculpture environments that respond to the forces of nature — wind, water and light — and become inviting focal points for civic life. Exploring the potential of unlikely materials, from fishing net to atomized water particles, Echelman combines ancient craft with cutting-edge technology to create her permanent sculpture at the scale of buildings. Experiential in nature, the result is sculpture that shifts from being an object you look at, to something you can get lost in.
This Festival takes place from 09/29 – 10/19 2014 all over the city of Graz and outside in selected towns and villages.
This years main theme is „I PREFER NOT TO … SHARE“
steirischer herbst presents and supports current artistic working methods, characteristic styles and discourses. However, presenting productions is only the most visible part of the programme. Research, processes and developments are just as much part of this festival as spectacular performances, large-scale exhibitions, space-dominating concerts of New Music, architectural research, public debates and night after night of celebration.
Continuing the Series of „Red Monument„, this are the first images from outside in this series. The red elastic fabric gives a good contrast with the landscape. In some situations I took also a stool inside of the fabric with me. This gaves me more options to express within the red tube. This selection is an excerpt of a total of 46 images.
