The sculpture STONES was the impetus for the collaboration between artist Gabriele Brunner and hotelier Ingo Strolz. A conversation about the catastrophic summer of 2005 that saw Hotel Auriga heavily damaged by flooding led to an intense exchange of ideas on the topics of personal setbacks and hurdles that have to be overcome in life.
Gabriele Brunner turned the very personal and existential experience of Ingo Strolz into the idea for a sculpture that makes the stones and their apotheosis visible. Large, heavy rocks lose their impact in the sculpture; seemingly flowing toward the sky, they dissolve and unblock the way. Something negative turns into something useful, rock obstacles become the material for something new.
Gabriele Brunner, 2017
Space is the prerequisite for art. Space for thinking, free space, space to become effective. When hotelier Ingo Strolz gave his commission, only the will to create existed. How an idea broke ground and filled the space, grew and flourished can be seen both in the sculpture STONES and the entire ARTWALK, which invites you= to marvel, think and observe with it’s now seven works.
