Be part of a collective art production organized by the Austrian artists collective Alpine Gothic in cooperation with Bildetage (Austria) and De Zwarte Ruyter.
The ‘carving workshop’ is open (and for free!) to anybody – we provide everything for you to carve a Edelweiss and entertain you with stories and music related to the Edelweiss.
The work 10000 Edelweiss investigates into the anachronistic myth around this Alpine flower. Questions on tourism, protection of nature and the value of art-production, as well as participation and Multiple Authorship are in the focus of our concept.
Take a simple birch twig and a knife and soon you will be able to cut the most beautiful flowers. The Edelweiss is the most precious and rare flower in the Alps. With your help we intend to produce 10000 of them to result in a huge collectively produced piece of art.
Saturday, 16.04.2011, 14:00-17:00 hrs
Thursday, 21.04.2011, 14:00-17:00 hrs

is an artist’s project on the railroad. The participants travel together to discuss their artwork and subsequently realize ad hoc-exhibitions in different cities. Framing constant conditions are the given distance,
the period of stay and the showroom. It’s up
to the artists to take their individual reaction time and expose themselves to the influence
of a new spatial and aesthetic pattern.
EN For In Discretion, Avi Krispin will be showing new video and photography works that touch on the theme of comical fetish behavior, anonymous meetings and prearranged perverse rituals. In line with these works, De Zwarte Ruyter will function as a set, and visitors can have the opportunity to participate in a new video project that will be filmed throughout the exhibition.
NL Voor In Discretion zal Avi Krispin een nieuwe serie video’s en foto’s laten zien die ingaan op het thema van de komische fetisj, de anonieme bijeenkomst en het bedachte perverse ritueel. In lijn met dit gegeven zal De Zwarte Ruyter functioneren als set alwaar bezoekers in de gelegenheid zijn om deel te nemen aan een nieuw video project welke onderdeel uitmaakt van de tentoonstelling.
