- Exhibition - Hosting the Dolomites in Vienna
A narrative of South Tyrolese creativity is one way of describing the exhibition called “Hosting the Dolomites – Appropriation of Space 7/7”, recently inaugurated in Vienna where it will run until 23 March.
After its stay in Moscow, and another opportunity to explore one of the liveliest cultural scenes of recent years, particularly considering the participating architects, some of whom are already known to our readers for their innovative architecture. Represented by their most stand-out projects with preparatory studies, models and of course photographs we can get to see the Merano cable-car station 2000 by Roland Baldi, he kindergarten by MoDus Architects in Bolzano or the Wine Center in Caldaro by feld72, also the location of the new ASA Pro Data headquarters built by architects Andreas Flora and Gilbert Sommer.
On the other hand, the conversion of a country house in Val Venosta is by the duo Dell‘Agnolo – Kelderer and the Mirror House, a modern home surrounded by vineyards in Bolzano is the work of Peter Pichler.
These architecture projects are joined by the artworks of Gino Alberti, Arnold Mario Dall'O, Hubert Knosrner, Käthe Hager von Strobele, Ingrid Hora, Willy Verginer and Thomas Sterna, which include landscape paintings, sculpture, photography, woodworking and model trains.
At the Italian Embassy in Vienna, we can admire a varied and complex landscape where different generations of professionals are combined and compared, to give us a rundown and to embody the spirit that animates part of the contemporary production from South Tyrol. The common denominator of the works is environmental awareness and the irony they display towards some of the clichés about the Alpine territory.
