Porubsky Halle Leoben

Production specifics
Auftragswerk steirischer herbst

German artist Ulla von Brandenburg creates a hybrid space for the coexistence of art and audience – a space that is sculpture, platform and stage in one.

For the Porubsky Halle in Leoben, Ulla von Brandenburg creates an art work entitled “Wolken lösen sich in Wasser” – ?a sculpture, platform, stage, and exhibition in one. The German artist thus creates a place of many different forms that is to be seen as a stand-alone work and also as forging a link to the herbst exhibition “Hall of Half-Life” at the festival centre in Graz, integrating artworks from this show into the multifunctional setting. By dissolving imaginary borders between theatre and exhibition space, she creates an environment that visitors can use as an unusual stage and make their own.

During the festival, the installation will be a scene for numerous events that are on the one hand linked with the programme of steirischer herbst and, on the other, with the redesign of the Porubsky Halle.

The inhabitants of Leoben and a number of initiatives are invited to use “Wolken lösen sich in Wasser” as a think-tank, laboratory or stage. The artwork and the former factory thus become a meeting place where performances, symposia and discussions are held, where lectures, concerts, film screenings, a swapmeet, and a poetry slam take place. Welcome to a place that is constantly changing!
