The sculpture AURIGA is the latest work to be presented on the ARTWALK in Lech. Positioned at the start of the gateway to the hotel of the same name, it now serves as the starting point of the impressive walk of art created by Gabriele Brunner. The Auriga constellation, clearly visible in the northern sky in winter, acts as an eponym for both the artwork and the hotel.
The depiction of the universe surrounding the Auriga constellation, which translates to “charioteer”, was a big challenge for the artist. Lines of heavy weathering steel run around the constellation with six balls of polished stainless steel. With neither beginning nor end, and despite its weight and power, the constellation appears to float.

Like the legendary charioteer guiding his coach horses across the sky, every entrepreneur is required to lead his company through difficult times. For hotelier Ingo Strolz, the Auriga constellation is both an admonisher and consolatory leader. Unapproachable, invulnerable yet still only a minuscule part of the infinite. Big or small? A matter of perspective.
