The ARTWALK in Lech am Arlberg

STAHL.H.ART sculpture path at Hotel Auriga

The ARTWALK in Lech am Arlberg was neither planned nor established as such. The art path, presenting a total of seven monumental sculptures, just came about and grew. Hotelier Ingo Strolz and artist Gabriele Brunner developed the ideas for these pieces of art in intense, personal conversations. The designs came from the multi-talented, gifted artist, realised in his own workshop in Pfunds.

The ARTWALK invites you to stop, to marvel, feel and think. Looking at the STAHL.H.ART sculptures raises big questions about one’s own self and becoming as well as human togetherness and the common route to joy, satisfaction and fulfilment. The steel-made sculptures look particularly impressive with the grand alpine view of the Arlberg as a backdrop.

Art on the mountain as stimulation

Art of space Hotel Auriga

Hotelier Ingo Strolz had been thinking for a long time about enriching the area around his Hotel Auriga in Lech am Arlberg with sculptures. The dimensions of the works amidst the energetic mountain scenery are significant: The monumental sculptures by Gabriele Brunner take effect in size and compactness, but also in the contrast of weight and seemingly floating delicateness.

The viewer can’t just “cold-shoulder” the works of art and the questions they raise. These pieces are just too present and encourage closer viewing and thinking; seven sculptures – seven inquires to everyone and all of humanity flowed into art. We invite you to discover the ARTWALK in Lech.

Our actions determine the pain and well-being of our planet. Our passions flicker around Earth like flames carrying and threatening it at the same time. We alone bear the responsibility for our home.

INNOVATION- TRADITION 2018

Old things are appreciated during transformation, thus gaining new significance. Not everything needs to be replaced by new things, but rather complemented: by ideas, innovation, technology or material.

DIVISION LINK 2018

The big divisions in society, politics, religion and the economy are central issues of our time. Meeting divisiveness with more togetherness has a connecting, healing and constructive effect.

AURIGA 2019

Helmsman, wagoner – big and strong. The constellation in the northern sky. Its star, Cappella, the brightest and most beautiful, never goes down. And yet – small and inconspicuous next to the infinite power of the universe.
