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.
The closing reception on 09th November will be followed by the presentation of Barsuglia’s installation Time Jump, 2019 – 2040 inaugurating the Sculpture Garden on the River Mur at 4.30 p.m. curated and Head of Project Daniela Haberz, M.A.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the Bell Tower and at the inauguration of the Sculpture Garden on the River Mur for Barsuglia’s performance planting a tree referencing Joseph Beuys Dokumentation Project 7.000 Oaks.
We would like to thank the County of Styria, City of Graz Culture, Real Estate Department & the Tourism Board as well as the Mayor of the City of Graz.
All my best for a relaxing summer,
Daniela Haberz, M.A.
